Snoop Dogg Joins Colin Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Pledge With $25,000 Donation
The NFL boycott may effectively be over but Colin Kaepernick certainly isn't finished giving back to the people.
His latest effort is the #10for10 campaign, the final push in his vow to give $1 million to various community organizations.
To that end, Snoop Dogg has joined the effort, and has donated $25,000 to Colin Kaepernick's $1 million pledge.
The campaign was started by the former NFL quarterback in effort to give back to various charities. Kaep vowed to give $100,000 per month to different organizations in effort to strengthen the community at large, and has held true to his word.
“I will donate one million dollars plus all the proceeds of my jersey sales from the 2016 season to organizations working in oppressed communities, 100k a month for 10 months,” Kaepernick's site reads.
So far, he's donated to 40 organizations over the past year, including Life After Hate, Leaders of Beautiful Struggle, Meals on Wheels, Somalia Famine Relief, Black Veterans for Social Justice, Center for Reproductive Rights and many more.
This is the final month of the pledge, and for the last 10 days of the effort, Kaepernick is doing something a bit different, as his various celebrity friends have donated $10,000 in the #10for10 campaign.
That's where Snoop comes in. The rapper is donating Mothers Against Police Brutality, and is not just matching Kaepernick's $10,000 donation, as the initial campaign proposed, but earlier, he posted on Instagram that he's adding an additional $15,000, brining his total donation to $25,000.
Actor/activist Jesse Williams and NBA superstars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant have participated in the #10for10 campaign as well, each donating $10,000 to various causes.
