Proceeds benefit Carr Cares Foundation
Based on 49 tackles, each worth $204.08
Please join me in putting books in the hands of young students by pledging for every tackle I record throughout the 2019 NFL season.
Each week during the regular season, the NFLPA #CommunityMVP program recognizes one player who has demonstrated a commitment to making a positive impact in his community. I am honored to have been chosen as the Week 5 NFLPA Community MVP based on my pledge to donate $12,500 per game to fund free screenings and diagnostic mammograms for women in need through the National Breast Cancer Foundation. In recognition of this honor, the NFLPA has kicked of my Tackling Youth Literacy campaign by making a $10,000 to my Carr Cares Foundation and our new “Lit Buddies” initiative. This is your chance to become a Community MVP with me by making your pledge.
The Carr Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by NFL Cornerback Brandon Carr, is focused on improving child literacy and physical fitness for youth. Lit Buddies, a new literacy initiative from the Carr Cares Foundation, puts BOOKS into the hands of children in the first, second, and third grade, with the goal of promoting a culture of reading amongst young students by providing resources and books. Lit Buddies is a bi-monthly subscription box that will provide young students with new books, souvenirs, and literary learning tools.
This campaign goes beyond football. It’s about giving to those who truly need and deserve our support. Thank you for supporting my cause and all of your support throughout my career!
