Kaepernick to Donate Money From Jersey Sales to Charity
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick says he will donate all the money he receives from his jersey sales to charity to thank fans for their support during his national anthem protest.
Kaepernick announced the move Wednesday on his Instagram account saying he was pleased that his San Francisco 49ers jersey has become the top seller in the NFL since his protest became public. Kaepernick is refusing to stand during the anthem in protest of police brutality and oppression of minorities in America.
He writes that the increase in his jersey sales "shows the people's belief that we can achieve justice and equality for ALL!"
