Thank you Colin Kaepernick, Meek Mill and Kobe Bryant for selecting YSI for #10for10!
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick uploaded a video on Twitter pledging $10,000 to YSI. Rapper Meek Mill will match Kaepernick’s donation. The move has received national and regional press including coverage on Philly.com, Billboard, Bleacher Report, and TMZ.
**Update: Kobe Bryant has also pledged to donate $10,000 to Youth Service, Inc. in his hometown of Philadelphia, backing Kaepernick and Meek Mill.
As part of his $1 million pledge for social justice, Kaepernick has been partnering with huge names in sports and entertainment to match his individual $10k donations. So far Serena Williams, Snoop Dogg, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant have all stepped up.
Despite my brother @meekmill’s current circumstances, he continues to stay connected in the community of Philly. He pledged to go #10for10 on my #MillionDollarPledge. We’re both donating $10k for a combined $20k to Youth Service Inc. Keep staying strong Meek, we love you brother! pic.twitter.com/ZCbecqtPF6
