New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his wife Brittany's Brees Dream Foundation will commit $1 million to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts in the Northeast, they reveal on the next edition of CBS News' special "Person To Person" to be broadcast Nov. 23, 2012 at 10/9c on the CBS Television Network.
"We want to be able to give back what's been given to us," Drew Brees tells co-hosts Charlie Rose and Lara Logan on "Person To Person." The couple also say their foundation will infuse $2 million into the New Orleans community before the Super Bowl in February.
Brees says New Orleans has embraced him and his family. "We feel so loyal and so tied to the city." Adds Brees, "It's a very unique place. But if you love New Orleans, it'll love you back."
