Back in early 2017 Colin Kaepernick announced he would be donating 1 Million dollars over the next year to social justice and equity organizations and Kap has kept his word through not only establishing his 'Know your rights' camp but also making sure org's doing good work are getting the money they need to invest in communities.
Well now Kap is making a point to include others in his fight for communities in need by asking other celebs to join him as he donates his last $100,000.
He'll do it over 10 days and is asking that the celebs suggest their favorite charities & donate alongside him.
Kevin durant joined for day one & I'm interested to see who else is going to throw their dollars into the pot to make sure the less fortunate are well educated, & safe!
Today I am proud to announce for the last round of $100k donations for my #MillionDollarPledge I am going #10for10! Teaming up with one of my friends to match a donation to an organization fighting for social justice. My brother @KevinDurant wanted to join me and chose De-Bug in the Bay Area to donate to! De-Bug initiates and leads campaigns advancing the rights of youth, workers, immigrants and those impacted by police and the criminal justice system. I’m donating $10k, KD is donating $10k! Thank you, brother for all your hard work and joining me! You are truly a champion on, and off the court! See it all on kaepernick7.com and check tomorrow to see who’s joining me to donate!
When I committed to my Million Dollar Pledge, my goal was to help organizations as well as support people, that help people. With that in mind, I reached out to my brother @KevinDurant from the @Warriors and asked what social justice organization he is passionate about and where he wanted me to make my next donation. Kevin quickly replied and surprised me by picking an organization I know - Silicon Valley De-Bug! De-Bug initiates and leads campaigns advancing the rights of youth, workers, immigrants and those impacted by police and the criminal justice system. In addition to selecting De-Bug, my brother KD has generously decided to match my donation of $10,000, with $10,000 of his own, making the total donation to De-Bug $20,000!!! My brother Kevin, you are truly a champion on, and off the court. Thank you for helping me complete part of my #MillionDollarPledge! #10for10
I'm proud to say that as part of my Million Dollar Pledge, I've donated $900,000 to 31 organizations fighting toward social justice. Its been a privilege to be able to do my part in helping organizations like Mother’s Against Police Brutality to provide comfort and support for families when law enforcement kills a community member, Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure to provide furniture to single mothers and Meals on Wheels who feed those less fortunate - just to highlight a few. Hearing about how each organization utilized the donations reaffirms that people doing good work need more support. As we welcome 2018, we also see that our work is not done. Tomorrow, I'll be announcing the final $100,000 to complete my Million Dollar Pledge. I'm excited to share this last round of donations with all of you. You can see all 31 donations I’ve made so far and what they used the money for on http://www.kaepernick7.com #MillionDollarPledge #10for10
