Colin Kaepernick remains in a lot of headlines for his actions, but today it’s for good news, as today he announced that he will donate all the proceeds from his jersey to local communities.
Kaeperncik made the announcement on Instagram.
I want to thank everyone who has shown me love and support, it truly means a lot! I wasn’t expecting my jersey sales to jump to number one because of this, but it shows the people’s belief that we can achieve justice and equality for ALL! The only way I can repay you for the support is to return the favor by donating all the proceeds I receive from my jersey sales back into the communities! I believe in the people, and WE can be the change!
The jersey of the QB was the top-selling jersey in the NFL online shop on Tuesday afternoon, and reports say that the sales of the jersey went through the roof after his refusal to stand for the National Anthem in protest.
