Colin Kaepernick Donates All 49ers Jersey Sales To Charity

Colin Kaepernick

Much has been made regarding Colin Kaepernick‘s stand against the National Anthem, though, it’s hard to disagree with his most recent comments. That’s because the San Francisco 49ers quarterback – who currently leads the team in jersey sales – says he plans to donate all profits to charity.

Kaepernick took to Instagram where he made the announcement:

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!

NFL players get a cut of their jersey and merchandise sales – how much likely determined in their contracts – so how much the 49ers signal caller will be donating is unknown. Still, it’s a solid gesture on the part of the former Nevada product.
