Kaepernick falls into the latter category. The one-time
The Community MVP award recognizes players who have made a positive impact in their local communities. Kaepernick definitely falls into that category as well. Last season, he pledged to donate $1 million of his salary to organizations working to help oppressed communities.
So far, he has donated $900,000 toward that total. He made his latest contributions on Sept. 7, the first day of the NFL season, splitting $100,000 among four charities. Two days later, he distributed new backpacks filled with books and other items at the Lower Eastside Girls Club of New York.
