As you may already know, I have committed my first 6 game checks to fund scholarships in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA. Now, I'm pledging my last 10 game checks to organizations supporting educational equity and opportunity in St. Louis, Boston and Philadelphia - the three cities that I've called home throughout my NFL career. I'm playing the entire 2017 NFL season without collecting income because I believe that education is the best gateway to a better tomorrow for EVERYONE in America. I'm encouraging fans, businesses and every person with a desire to join in my pursuit of equal education opportunities for all students to make their own pledge. My goal is that through this campaign my donation will be doubled by those inspired to join the effort -- because together we can accomplish more.
WILL YOU TAKE THE PLEDGE WITH ME?
Please join me by selecting your city below and pledging what you can for our last 10 games. If you can’t pledge for 10 weeks, simply donate $10. If we all make this pledge, we can have a life changing impact for underserved kids.
As a professional athlete, I couldn’t launch this without a little competition. For the city that has the most pledges at the end of week 16 of the regular season, I will give an additional $50,000 to our partner charity in that city!*
PICK YOUR CITY... MAKE YOUR PLEDGE... IMPACT LIVES!
*Total pledges for the $50,000 competition will be an addition of all contributions and Pledges made on Pledgeit.org plus donations giving directly to the benefitting organizations in support of this campaign.
