ATLANTA — Miami Dolphins recipient Kenny Stills tells The Associated Press he’s donating the cash he receives from the league for being an NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award nominee into Colin Kaepernick’s charity.
Each nominee receives around 50,000 from the NFL Foundation for a charity of his decision.
Stills, who has continued to pounce on the sideline during the national anthem to check out Kaepernick’s lead and demonstration social injustice, selected Know Your Rights Camp,”a free campaign for youth based by colinkaepernick to improve awareness on degree, self-empowerment, and schooling to correctly socialize with law authorities in various scenarios,” per the organization’s internet site.
Stills said”it’s bothersome” which Kaepernick has been outside of the league for two years.
“I’m very appreciative of what he’s been doing and the service I’ve had from the Know Your Rights Camp along with him and all of the fans out there encouraging us now and have our rear,” Stills said on the red rug before the NFL Honors event Saturday night.
“I’m here accepting a donation out of the NFL and I’m excited to announce that I’ll be pushing that money to Know Your Rights Camp and seeking to help with the complexities they’re attempting to help.”
