Colin Kaepernick will donate 1 million dollars to charities to help communities
Colin Kaepernick has been under a lot of scrutiny, but the former Nevada quarterback is now putting the money where his mouth is. The man scheduled to make 11.9 million dollars this year will donate his first 1 million dollars to charities that will help communities that are underprivileged.
Here is his release:
“I am planning to take it a step further, I’m currently working with organizations to be involved, and making sure I’m actively in these communities, as well as donating the first million dollars I make this year to different organizations to help these communities and help these people,” Kaepernick said Thursday night. “I’ve been very blessed to be in this position and make the kind of money I do, and I have to help these people. I have to help these communities. It’s not right that they’re not put in the position to succeed, or given the opportunities to succeed.”
Now the man is starting to step up financially. I like it.
