Colin Kaepernick Donates $50K to Help Create Free Clinic For Those Fighting Dakota Access Pipeline
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been quite the busy man since their season ended in late December.
Last Monday, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback was busy handing out books, clothing, and bedding at shelters and orphanages. On Friday, he mapped out the next round of donations as part of his promised $1 million of donations to various community organizations around the country.
$50,000 of that money will be donated to the Mni Wiconi Health Clinic Partnership at the Standing Rock camp, set up in resistance to the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.
“According to Kaepernick’s website, 50 percent of the funds will pay the salaries of the doctors and nurses, while the rest is split between building materials for the camp’s mobile medical clinic, medical supplies and liability insurance.
The free clinic at the camp was set up for protesters that have been gathered there over the last few months in a historic uprising to block the controversial US$3.8 billion oil pipeline.”
Whether you agreed with his kneeling or not, he has been a man of his word and has been doing everything he said he would do.
