Russell Wilson struggled this season as a quarterback, and his bad play led to him being heavily criticized. This week, he is being called out for something completly different.
A ranging report from USA Today published on Wednesday outlined that Wilson’s “Why Not You? Foundation” had only donated approximately 40 percent of its earnings to charity, with the rest going to fundraising and employee salaries. That is a huge problem.
In 2021, his foundation is said to have received $7.5M in revenue, but only reported $2.8M being passed on to any charitable activities.
On Saturday, Wilson took to social media and released a video to speak about the allegations about his charity.

Wilson’s charity raises specific questions because it was used as a key reason Wilson won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
Wilson appears to be doing everything he can to make this situation right, because it does not look good.
Lucky for him and Ciara, this story is unlikely to have many legs left with the Super Bowl being less than 24 hours away and over 100 million people getting ready to tune in to watch the Eagles and Chiefs. Not to mention, the fans that are waiting to see Rihanna.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
