Colin Kaepernick Gives Out Custom-Made Suits At Parole Office In Jamaica, Queens To Help Ex-Cons Return To the Workforce
Today’s “Good News of the Day” comes courtesy of one of our favorite athletes, Colin Kaepernick! Even though the former San Francisco 49er is out of a job himself right now, he still took time to help out those less fortunate than him who, due to their criminal records, need all the help they can get in re-entering the workforce. Check out his inspirational story below…
Kaepernick teamed up with Kevin Livingston of 100 Suits for 100 Men, an organization that focuses on “changing the lives of men and women in the New York City area by providing solutions to help those individuals get to a place of economic freedom and reduce recidivism rates.” 100 Suits for 100 men aid individuals who were formerly incarcerated, homeless, gang members and survivors of domestic violence.
According to the Washington Post, the organization stated that Kaepernick dropped off two large boxes of custom-made suits at a parole office in Queens.
He’s a hero in my eyes, he’s a hero in the eyes of the guys who are going to be receiving these suits,” Livingston told TMZ. ” Colin, you’re the man to me, you’re a hero to the men of South Jamaica Queens.”
Kaepernick has been absent from the field since he withdrew from his contract with the 49ers not too long before the start of the NFL’s free agency period. However, the 29-year-old is using his time of the field to help those in need. Not only has he pledged to donate $1 million to communities in need, Kaepernick donated his sneaker collection to the homeless and made a $50,000 donation to Meals on Wheels.
Among those many selfless acts, Kaepernick created a camp inspired by the Black Panther Party called the Know Your Rights Camp. Created with the purpose to “raise awareness on higher education, self empowerment, and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios,” per the camp’s website. With hopes to create a generation to change the world, Colin Kaepernick is definitely setting a good example. – via urbanmecca
Colin Kaepernick really doesn’t get the respect he deserves for not only the sacrificial stance he took to bring attention to issues that affect minorities but also what he has been doing after. He’s our generation’s Muhammed Ali right now and doesn’t get the respect he deserves. S/O to Colin, once again, for being the stand-up man that he is and we sincerely wish him nothing but the best!
