#ColinKapernick and girlfriend #NessaDiab at the #WrinkleInTime premiere.
"Thank you @ava for inviting me and @nessnitty to the premiere of your brilliant film A Wrinkle in Time! Continue to pave the way for Black women in Hollywood. I can't wait to see what's next!"
#ColinKaepernick is a man of his word. He said he would donate $1 million to #communities in need and he did. And now he’s giving more.
The team-less #quarterback hit his mark Wednesday after finalizing his 10-for-10 pledge that included ten days of donating $10,000 which was matched by a high profile friend. With some days including multiple donators, those who joined in contributed $130,000 for a combined 10-for-10 total of $230,000.
But the movement’s traction was #attractive and many voiced their desire to keep it going. “I’ve had so many of my #friends reach out and want to be involved and want to support, that we’re going to make this the 10-for-10 encore,” Kaepernick said in a video posted to Twitter.
Since announcing the extension Thursday morning, seven people have donated. #DJKhaled kicked it off, followed by hip hop legend #DrDre, radio host and co-founder of the #KnowYourRightsCamp#NessaDiab – Kaepernick’s girlfriend – and rap mogul Sean “#Diddy” Combs.
#JaylenBrown of the #BostonCeltics – former Cal star – and future NBA Hall of Famer #KobeBryant joined in trailed by #Zendaya, an American actress from #Oakland. “Colin Kaepernick, nothing but love. Thank you for doing wat you do, thank you for doing what you’ve been doing, and thank you for doing this million-dollar pledge,” Khaled said in a video posted to Twitter. “We appreciate you worldwide.” Khaled – The lower East Side Girls Club. New York City, N.Y.
Dre – Urban Underground. Milwaukee, Wis.
Diab – The Lower East Side Girls Club. New York City, N.Y.
Combs – Dream. Harlem, N.Y.
Brown – United Playaz. San Francisco, Calif.
Bryant – Youth Service Inc. Philadelphia, Pa.
Zendaya – Know Your Rights Camp.
Some organizations received multiple donations. The Lower East Side Girls Club has now accepted $53,000 and United Playaz has collected $30,000.
The difference between the encore and the original 10-for-10 is the manner in which donations are presented. While originally it was one each day, this seems to be a speedy burst with no designated end date.
