National Football League free agent Colin Kaepernick is following through on his promise to donate one million dollars and all the proceeds of his jersey sales from the 2016 season to organizations working in oppressed communities.

Kaepernick and Snoop Dogg have donated $35,000 to a Dallas-based group calling themselves Mothers Against Police Brutality.

THANK YOU to Mothers Against Police Brutality.They unite mothers who have lost their children to police violence.MAPB, thank you for everything you do!See what they will be using the $35k donation Snoop & I gave them for my #MillionDollarPledge on https://t.co/xr8M9wiOiq!


In 2016, Kaep announced "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". The family said he was needlessly killed by police.

Kaepernick's #10for10 campaign has earned pledges of $10,000 from Golden State Warriors players Steph Curry and Kevin Durrant as well as actor Jesse Williams. He will meet the goal with five more pledges of $10,000 over the next five days.

The NFL's anthem protest movement began in the preseason of 2016, when Kaepernick first sat, then knelt, in protest against police brutality.
