J. Cole Donates $10,000 to Colin Kaepernick’s Charity Campaign
Colin Kaepernick's charity campaign continues to make great strides, as he receives another large donation from a major rapper. J. Cole donates $10,000 to Baltimore organization Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle as part of the NFL free agent's campaign to raise $1 million for charities in underserved communities.
Revealing the essential donation from the 2014 Forest Hills Drive rapper on Twitter, Kaepernick thanks his longtime friend in a video, and also explains the purpose behind Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle. The organization serves to plant the community's voices more into the political conversation within the city.
"This next brother I've known for years. He's one of my favorite artists and has had my back from day one. J. Cole," Kaepernick states. "J. Cole is donating $10,000 to Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle, whose goal is to radically change the discourse around politics by interjecting the community voice into the political conversation. Thank you, brother. We love you. We appreciate you, and we can't wait to see what you do next."
CEO of Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle Adam Jackson also tweets excitement about the donation, and thanks Cole and Kaepernick for inspiring people to give back.
"@JColeNC is the realest. Just found out that he plans to donate $10K to my organization," Jackson tweets. "Thank you, brother! And many thanks brother @Kaepernick7 for the love and support! ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾#LBSGang#BeautyInTheStruggle."
Tons of other celebrities have been helping Kaepernick as he strives to raise $1 million for charity, including Meek Mill, Joey Bada$$, Nick Cannon, Snoop Dogg, T.I., Chris Brown and many more.
The $10,000 donation from Cole should not come as a surprise, as the two have had a close relationship for years. The "Neighbors" MC has even shown his support for the football star's activism during his concerts, and encouraged fans to boycott the NFL for their treatment of Kaepernick after he kneeled during the National Anthem during games.
