Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, is on a mission to raise $1 million to donate to various charities.
NY Daily News reports that Kaepernick is not alone in his efforts as many celebrities have joined his cause.
Rapper Snopp Dogg recently dropped $25,000 into the Kaepernick’s pledge. Kaepernick posted on Instagram thanking the rap legend.
“It’s no secret that Uncle @snoopdogg has transcended into global mega stardom and even though he’s busier than ever, out brother still finds time to give back to the Community in so many ways. Like a true OG, Uncle Snoop didn’t even flinch when I reached out to him about being part of my #MillionDollarPledge,” expressed Kaepernick Instagram.
Snoop stepped it up even more and said he would donate $10,000 to the Mother’s Against Police Brutality which Kaepernick is gamed to match.
In another Instagram post, Kaepernick details what the organization Mothers Against Police Brutality is all about. It unites, “mothers who have lost their children to police. MAPB is the new voice for justice for victims of police brutality and deadly force,” wrote Kaepernick.
He later posted that Snoop Dogg was going to donate an additional $15,000! When Uncle Snopp stops by he really stops by.
