Colin Kaepernick is not letting his critics, including President Donald Trump, define him. Kaepernick has been making good on his plan to donate $1 million and all the proceeds from his jersey sales from the 2016 NFL season to charities. From October 2016 to June 2017, he has donated $900,000 to 31 organizations.
The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback announced Wednesday on Twitter that over the next 10 days, he will give $10,000 a day to a charity of his choice for the final $100,000 of his $1 million pledge. Each organization picked will receive an additional $10,000 from a celebrity.
Thank you @stephencurry30 for going #10for10 & matching my $10k donation to United Playaz in SF for a total of $20k for them! My brother Steph, your selflessness on the court extends off the court. Thank you. See the details https://t.co/xr8M9wiOiq! #MillionDollarPledge pic.twitter.com/1gAhIP7RAw
