Colin Kaepernick Gets Airplane to Ship Food, Water to Somalia (VIDEO)
QB Colin Kaepernick may currently be a free agent and not fielding any calls from any interested teams, but that has certainly not stopped him from doing what he said he would do during the 2016 NFL season.
Just a few days ago, Kaepernick pleaded to the media to cover the dying people in Somalia so they can receive some help.
Forty-eight hours later, with the help of a bunch of people, he actually got an airplane to send that aid.
“Big victory for Colin Kaepernick … the NFL quarterback — along with other activists — was able to convince Turkish Airlines to donate a plane for a much needed humanitarian mission to Somalia.
Kaep made his initial plea to the airline on Wednesday — saying, “There’s an impending famine because of drought, politics, inaction of (non-government organizations) and lack of media attention.”
He added, “People are dying in Somalia right now that need our help.”
FYI, Turkish is the only major airline that flies to Somalia from the U.S.
Now, Kaep says part 2 of his mission is underway — getting the food, water and supplies to fill the plane.
