I have had an amazing opportunity to play 10 years of NFL football. I want to give back to the communities who were part of that journey. Although I now take the field for the Eagles, the city of St. Louis and Rams fans will always have a special place in my heart. I was drafted by St. Louis and played eight years of football there; I will always be grateful for how St. Louis fans embraced me and supported my efforts throughout the years. St. Louis is and extremely generous city, and I’m excited to be able to team up with the community again with this new campaign.
This season I have made the decision to give all my game earnings to help promote educational equity and opportunity for underserved youth. I already committed my first six game checks to fund scholarships in my hometown of Charlottesville, VA. Now, I have made the pledge to give my last 10 game checks to organizations focused on making learning and college a reality for kids in the three cities that have given me so much throughout my career – St. Louis, Boston and Philadelphia. I’ve launched Pledge 10 for Tomorrow, challenging fans from all three cities to take the pledge with me. This is your chance to step up for St. Louis!
This is your opportunity to accept the challenge and join my pledge to the youth of St. Louis. Here’s how to Pledge 10 for Tomorrow:
No pledge is too small, or too big. Every little bit helps and if we all make this pledge, we can have a life changing impact for underserved kids in St. Louis. The proceeds from this campaign will support The Little Bit Foundation and College Bound in St. Louis, two awesome organizations that are committed to ensuring underserved school children have the resources and supper they need to be successful in school. Little Bit is focused on breaking down barriers to learning for under-resourced children in the St. Louis area by providing for their basic needs starting in elementary school. College Bound empowers promising high school students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve bachelor’s degrees and fulfilling careers.
To raise the stakes a bit, I will be donating an additional $50,000 to the charity in the city that wins the challenge by having the most pledges!*
