Colin Kaepernick divulges plan for final $100K of million-dollar charitable pledge

Colin Kaepernick divulges plan for final $100K of million-dollar charitable pledge

As for the Silicon Valley De-Bug $20,000, that money will be used for families to visit those in prison, lobby for a law to protect young people in prison, pay for pretrial release for those that can't pay bail and support steps taken to end bail. KD chose De-Bug - a Bay Area organization that advocates for criminal justice reform and police accountability.

According to Kaepernick, the final round of donations will come in the form of a 10-day initiative, in which he'll donate $10,000 to an organization that a celebrity will match. Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors helped Kaepernick pick the organization and will match the pledge with his own $10,000 donation.

"I knew about Kaepernick's Million Dollar Pledge nearly a year ago, where he's putting his money where his mouth is", Curry added (via the San Francisco Chronicle). Colin will be matching donations of $10,000 dollars to the charity of their choice.

"KD, thank you so much, brother, for continuing to uplift and empower our communities", Kaepernick said in a video posted to his Twitter account. That was about a month after the quarterback, then with the 49ers, first declared his intention of "donating the first million dollars I make this season to different organizations to help these communities and help these people". "We love and appreciate you".

Kaepernick made this pledge around the same time he was criticized for kneeling during the national anthem when he played for the 49ers. Kaepernick filed a grievance against the National Football League in October, accusing it of collusion.
