San Francisco 49ers, Anaconda, and Chris Brown: Colin Kaepernick Reaches His Million Dollar Pledge Goal with the Help of Fellow Celebrities @balleralert "峒 Colin Kaepernick Reaches His Million Dollar Pledge Goal with the Help of Fellow Celebrities - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the help of his celebrity friends, ColinKaepernick has managed to reach his ‘Million Dollar Pledge’ goal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s decision to start the pledge followed his monumental kneel during the national anthem at a preseason game in late 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kaepernick announced that he would be donating a total of $1 million to a number of charity organizations that focus on societal issues, as an effort to help the oppressed communities of those in need and raise social awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To date, the 30-year-old has donated over $900,000 to nearly 31 charities that are dedicated to homelessness, educational development, community-police relations, criminal justice reform, rights for inmates, at-risk families, and even reproductive rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In mid-January, as he entered his final $100,000 donation, Kaepernick started the 10for10 project, in which he teamed up with 10 artists, athletes, and influencers to meet the $1 million mark. Each participant was asked to donate $10,000 to a cause of their choice, and Kaepernick would then match it with another $10,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday, he matched his last $10,000 with Usher’s donation to H.O.M.E., a Georgia-based organization for single mothers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Thank you to everyone who has supported me, matched me and my pledge, and, most importantly, the people,” Kaepernick expressed. “I know that we still have a lot of work to do, however, by getting everyone involved, I truly believe that we can all achieve and move mountains towards our goals for social justice." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Others to participate were Kevin Durant (Silicon Valley De-Bug), Jesse Williams (Advancement Project), Steph Curry (United Playaz), Snoop Dogg (Mothers Against Police Brutality), Serena Williams (Imagine LA), T.I. (Angel by Nature), Jhene Aiko and Chris Brown (School on Wheels), Nick Cannon and Joey Badass (Communities United by Police Reform), and Meek Mill (Youth Service, Inc.).

Philadelphia 76ers, Basketball, and Colin Kaepernick: James Harden Pays Meek Mill A Visit In Jail, Says He's In High Spirits @balleralert JamesHarden Pays MeekMill A Visit In Jail, Says He's In High Spirits - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even behind bars, rapper Meek Mill is still receiving loads of support from fans, family, and even close friends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Tuesday, December 26th, Houston Rockets player James Harden paid a visit to Mill at the State Correctional Institution, located in Chester, PA-and, from what he says, the Philly MC is actually holding up just fine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Got a chance to see my bro meekmill today. His spirit is high and hopefully, we can get him out by February,” Harden wrote in his recent Instagram story. He then went on to relay a message that Mill wanted to tell his supporters, regarding some possible music projects on the way. “Told me to tell y’all when he gets out he got some [heat] for y’all.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In Mill’s honor, TMZ reported that sources close to Harden told TMZ Sports that the NBA superstar had also gotten some ‘Free Meek’ sneakers custom made and would be wearing them on the basketball court when the Rockets play the Celtics, this Thursday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though, as of now, it is unclear as to when and if Mill will be coming home anytime soon, it’s great to know that many are still standing with him during this difficult time. Joel Embiid and Michael Rubin, 76ers owner, visited Mill back in November. Colin Kaepernick also spoke with the rapper and said that he was very humbled by everyone’s overwhelming amount of support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, this isn’t Mill’s first big run-in with the law. The 30-year-old has had a troublesome past, but we’re hoping that things will get back on track for the better… at least for his sake. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

San Francisco 49ers, Basketball, and Cleveland Cavaliers: LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick ls Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL @balleralert zar LeBron James Says Colin Kaepernick Is Being Blackballed Out Of the NFL– blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Sunday, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBronJames showed his support for ColinKaepernick and his fight for social justice. The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”
