Girl Gives Tooth-Fairy Money To Ron Rivera; Panthers Coach Returns It (Video)

After Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera’s house caught fire last month, his “one and only true fan” wanted to help him out.

Nine-year-old Harmonie Frederick sent Rivera a little bit of cash to help the coach cover the cost of damages.

“I gave him $5 from my tooth fairy money,” Harmonie told WLTX-TV in South Carolina. “So he won’t have to be homeless, waiting for his house to be built back.”

Rivera, whose house was only “partially burned,” returned the money to Harmonie with a letter explaining that insurance would cover the costs.

“Thank you for your concern,” the letter read. “We are all fine, our dogs included. I appreciate your five dollars but our insurance will cover the rebuilding of our house. Thanks, Coach Rivera.”

Rivera also sent plenty of Panthers swag.

As for Harmonie, she plans to save the $5 for college.
