Since his decision to protest the national anthem, jersey sales for Colin Kaepernick have sky rocketed. This week, he posted an Instagram message noting that he’s using the proceeds to give back to the communities who need it most. He writes:
I want to thank everyone who has shown me love and support, it truly means a lot! I wasn’t expecting my jersey sales to jump to number one because of this, but it shows the people’s belief that we can achieve justice and equality for ALL! The only way I can repay you for the support is to return the favor by donating all the proceeds I receive from my jersey sales back into the communities! I believe in the people, and WE can be the change!
