XXL Magazine is reporting that Colin Kaepernick is a step closer to his goal of donating $1 million to charities. The former San Francisco 49er's quarterback donated $34,000 to J. Cole's Dreamville Foundation, which benefits urban youth. The donation will fund multiple special projects that Kaepernick will announce in the upcoming weeks.
Kaepernick's donation has brought him to $800,000 out of the $1 million he pledged to donate to community charities. He made this pledge last September.
Though Kaepernick is currently jobless and it seems that there aren't any prospects to pick him up right now, he's still fighting the good fight. And he has a ton of support. J. Cole recently called out the Ravens organization during his show for not signing Kaepernick:
“Matter of fact, don’t y’all think that someone that got money, power and fame should be standing up for them type of shits?” Cole told the audience. “Baltimore, the s*** that’s happening here, don’t you think that somebody should risk their whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this s***? Even if it cost them their money, their job, their life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he doing? And he trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that s*** for real.”
