Colin Kaepernick to Donate Proceeds From Best-Selling Jersey Sales
Colin Kaepernick on Wednesday thanked the public for making his jersey the NFL's top seller after his national anthem protest and vowed to donate all the proceeds he receives "back into the communities."
The San Francisco 49ers quarterback made his pledge in an Instagram post.
Before Kaepernick first sat down in protest during the playing of the the "Star Spangled Banner," he ranked higher than 120th in league jersey sales. Kaepernick moved to No. 1 on Tuesday. The 49ers sold more Kaepernick gear online in the week after he began his protest than the previous eight months.
