Unsigned football player turned activist Colin Kaepernick is using his free time away from the NFL to raise and donate money towards social justice groups that he pledged to aid.

Kaepernick, who started a controversial movement of protesting against the National Anthem, donated a whopping $1 million to organizations dedicated to highly liberal causes – most of which are anti-police.

Breitbart reports the following:

“Soon after Colin Kaepernick began his protest movement during the preseason of 2016, he pledged to donate $1 million to various organizations fighting for social justice.

According to an announcement on the former 49er’s Instagram page, he has officially made good on that promise with a final donation of $100,000.

According to the statement, Kaepernick will reveal which organizations received the final installment of $100,000 on Wednesday.”

Wednesday, Kaepernick posted an additional announcement on Instagram, stating that he had completed his pledge.

Today I am proud to announce for the last round of $100k donations for my #MillionDollarPledge I am going #10for10! Teaming up with one of my friends to match a donation to an organization fighting for social justice. My brother @KevinDurant wanted to join me and chose De-Bug in the Bay Area to donate to! De-Bug initiates and leads campaigns advancing the rights of youth, workers, immigrants and those impacted by police and the criminal justice system. I’m donating $10k, KD is donating $10k! 

I’m proud to say that as part of my Million Dollar Pledge, I’ve donated $900,000 to 31 organizations fighting toward social justice. Its been a privilege to be able to do my part in helping organizations like Mother’s Against Police Brutality to provide comfort and support for families when law enforcement kills a community member, Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure to provide furniture to single mothers and Meals on Wheels who feed those less fortunate – just to highlight a few. Hearing about how each organization utilized the donations reaffirms that people doing good work need more support. As we welcome 2018, we also see that our work is not done. Tomorrow, I’ll be announcing the final $100,000 to complete my Million Dollar Pledge. I’m excited to share this last round of donations with all of you. You can see all 31 donations I’ve made so far and what they used the money for on #MillionDollarPledge #10for10
