I can guarantee that no one who is donating money has more money than Drew. Just because he is awaiting a deal, which will be close to 20 million a year, doesn’t mean he needs money from his supporters. As most of you may know, New Orleans isn’t the safest or cleanest city in the world, so why not put the money into the city that needs it, than to a man that doesn’t? On the website, it says that Brees does so much to the city that he needs a bonus, but Drew will be doing good deeds for the city regardless. The only way to improve the city as a whole, is to give it to the city itself. I do believe that the website shows great passion for the team and lets the team know that the fans are getting impatient to get the deal done, but the donations need to go to the city that is trying to just survive.
The donations are symbolic. It's to show him how much he means to the community and how much the fans are willing to do to show him this and to convince him to stay in NO. I seriously doubt anyone donating to this actually thinks he NEEDS the money. and i'd be willing to bet that every penny raised through this will end up being donated to the Drew Brees fund which, from my understanding, does plenty to help the 'city itself'.
