Headline Goes Here

HOUSTON - For the second straight year, Matt Schaub and his wife Laurie, through their Gr8 Hope Foundation, stepped up in a big way to help the kids of Texas Children's West Campus in Houston.

Monday afternoon, the Texans Quarterback and his wife presented a check for $200,000 which nearly doubled the donation from their foundation in 2011.

"It pulls at our heartstring's," said Laurie Schaub.  " Anything we can do to help the kids and Texas Children's we will do."

The Gr8 Hope Foundation provides resources and more importantly, directly impacts children with serious medical needs. Last year's donation funded a "child life" playroom at Texas Children's West Campus.  That's just the start of things to come.

  "It's something that Laurie and I didn't want to put together just for a flash in the pan, a one- or two-year thing," Schaub said.

"We wanted to do this as long as we can, as long as we're here in Houston, wherever we are after that. It's very important for us to be here, because we've developed such a great relationship with the people here. It's important for us to keep this thing going as long as we can."
