TE Joseph Fauria gets a special thank you from Make-A-Wish Michigan

Posted Oct 8, 2013

TV personality Jimmy Fallon donated $10,000 on behalf of Fauria for his touchdown dance at Washington

When TV personality Jimmy Fallon offered $10,000 toward an NFL player's charity of choice, rookie TE Joseph Fauria took note.

The challenge from Fallon was to incorporate one of his touchdown dances performed by him and Justin Timberlake on his show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, into a game.

Fallon said he would "pay the fine" by donating the money to charity.

"I was aware of the YouTube video that came out with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake ... I thought it would be a great idea," said Fauria in a one-on-one interview with detroitlions.com following the win at Washington.

Fauria said he wanted the money to go to a charity in Michigan, so he chose Make-A-Wish Michigan.

As a thank you, the kids from Make-A-Wish made him a special video, complete with their own N'Sync moves.
