Despite my brother’s current circumstances, he continues to stay involved and connected in the community of his hometown of Philly. I’ve spoken to @meekmill several times since his incarceration and during one of these calls, is when he pledged to go #10for10 with me on my #MillionDollarPledge. We’re both donating $10,000 each for a combined $20,000 to Philadelphia’s Youth Service Inc. YSI is dedicated to strengthening the family unit, helping at risk teens and promoting child safety. Meek has worked closely with @ysiphilly and has spoken to teens and young adults there offering motivation and inspiration to those in their YES Program, a program that offers immediate housing and support services to youth at risk. He wanted to make sure that we contribute to another great program doing great things in our community. Now that’s a total of $990,000 I’ve donated as part of my #MillionDollarPledge – Keep staying strong, Meek, we love you and are thinking of you, brother. Head on over to Kaepernick7.com for a complete list of all the different organizations that I’ve donated to, to fight systemic oppression. Only $10,000 more till I complete my Million Dollar Pledge!
