Root for a good game – pledge to donate when your team scores.
If you feel ambivalent or conflicted about the politics of the NFL but still want to root for your favorite team, consider giving to an organization of your choosing every time your team scores. Or, if your team isn’t in the game, when something good happens to the team you hate the least.
Use the hashtag #AGoodGame on social media to make your pledge known and see the good work being done by your community.
We encourage you to pick a cause that you feel passionate about. There are no wrong answers. If you are looking for some causes to support here are a handful of some suggestions:
- The ACLU of Massachusetts
- NAACP Legal Defense Fund
- The Southern Poverty Law Center
- The International Rescue Committee
- The Trevor Project
- The Hispanic Federation (for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and more)
Colin Kaepernick also has a list of organizations working in oppressed communities that he is supporting with his million dollar pledge.
