As donations to Thomas Morstead continue to rise — over $215,000 as of Friday morning — as does his contribution to Minnesota hospitals. 

With that in mind, doctors and patients at the hospital sent a touching thank you video back to the Saints punter.

Morstead, whose toughness and class in Sunday's playoff loss to the Vikings inspired Minnesota natives to start donating to his charity, pledged on Wednesday to personally deliver a check to Children's Minnesota if this donations hit $100,000.

On Wednesday night, donations did just that.

Morstead posted on Twitter Friday morning to express his awe that donations had surpassed $200,000, as well as respond to the video. 

"Can’t wait to get up to Minnesota!" he wrote.

What You Give Will Grow is Morstead's foundation, which primarily focuses on fighting pediatric cancer.

A Vikings fan started the movement on Reddit after Morstead punted in obvious pain during the playoff game, then came back out onto the field and shook several Minnesota hands as part of the Saints group that was forced to come back out of the locker room for the NFL-mandated conversion try.

Children's Minnesota is a not-for-profit system that includes two hospitals, 12 primary-care clinics, nine specialty-care sites and six rehabilitation clinics.

Morstead said he'll deliver the check the week of Super Bowl LII, which will be played Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
