  • The 49ers star certainly has seen the spotlight since his time with the NFL, from receiving an Emmy to pulling a Nike shoe due its controversial message.
  • Know Your Rights Camp, his non-profit organization, posted a video of him and his girlfriend handing out food, clothing, toiletries, and Nike backpacks to a community where many homeless people in Oakland live, advised The Root.
  • In regards to the charitable act, Kaepernick stated “What we’ve done here today in Oakland, we want to do all over the country, in cities all over this country, by bringing together local leaders, local activists and local youth, and not only giving them the skills and lessons they need, but we want to show them how much we love and value them.”

No matter your opinion on the man we can all agree that it’s always a great thing when people give back to those less fortunate.
