Snoop Dogg Joins Colin Kaepernick For A Good Cause
Everybody’s favorite OG, Uncle Snoop, is the latest celebrity to join Colin Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Pledge, and he did so by donating a total of $25,000. Initially, the LBC legend matched his pal Kaepernick’s $10,000 donation to Mothers Against Police Brutality, but later came back and insisted on dropping another $15K.
Colin explained the entire deal in a recent Instagram post saying, “It’s no secret that Uncle @snoopdogg…still finds time to give back to the Community in so many ways. Like a true OG, Uncle Snoop didn’t even flinch when I reached out to him about being part of my #MillionDollarPledge. Snoop and I are each donating $10,000 for a total of $20,000 to Mother’s Against Police Brutality.”
Uncle @snoopdogg just called me and said he wants to donate more to my #MillionDollarPledge! Wow! Not only did he match my #10for10 he loves the work that Mothers Against Police Brutality is doing so much that he is donating another $15,000! Now, MAPB will receive a $35,000 donation! Thank you, Snoop for recognizing the good work this organization is doing in the community to be a voice for justice for victims of police brutality and deadly force.

Kaepernick then posted just an hour later announcing that Snoop decided to add even more to his donation, making the pair’s contributions to Mother’s Against Police Brutality–a multi-racial, multi-ethnic coalition uniting mothers nationwide to fight for civil rights, police accountability, and policy reform–a total of $35,000.
The activist first announced the Million Dollar Pledge in September of 2016, and promised that he would help charities that are helping oppressed communities, which is exactly what Kaepernick has continued to do. Steph Curry, Jesse Williams, and Kevin Durant are among the names who have also donated to the Million Dollar Pledge.
