Colin Kaepernick is a man of his word. He sacrificed his NFL career to take up the fight for social justice and in the past year, he has donated $900,000 to different social causes in communities across the country.
Colin Kaepernick is no longer just a disenfranchised ex-NFL quarterback. He has grown into a much larger figure with a much bigger purpose. He has transcended football and become a symbol, an icon, a hero in the fight against racial injustice and oppression in the community. And throughout 2017, he demonstrated his authentic passion for people who do not have a voice for themselves through his work in the community.
Kaepernick plans to donate the final $100,000 in 2018 to complete his $1 million pledge, but the video he posted on Instagram reveals that his presence in the community is just as significant as the donations he contributed. Flip the page to watch the video on his plans for the remaining donations.
