Colin Kaepernick Is One Donation Away From Completing His $1M Pledge

Colin Kaepernick continues to demonstrate that he is truly a man of the people. He confirmed his one million dollar pledge is near completion.

On January, 16 the former NFL star took to Twitter to give an update regarding his donation program. “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 on kaepernick7.com #MillionDollarPledge #10for10.”

The post included some footage from prior community events his non-profit organization has hosted included him personally distributing custom suits outside of a New York parole office to the unemployed.

Today he shed light on the game plan for the remaining $ 100,000 and it involves some of his sports peers in the #$ 10For10 challenge. Colin will be matching donations of $ 10,000 dollars to the charity of their choice. First to step up is NBA all-star Kevin Durant.

“My brother Kevin Durant @KDTrey5 has generously decided to match my donation of $ 10,000, with $ 10,000 of his own, making the total donation to De-Bug $ 20,000!!! My brother Kevin, you are truly a champion on, and off the court. #MillionDollarPledge #10for10 Kaepernick7.com” he declared via Twitter.

KD expressed his sincere thanks to Colin for his work off the field. “Thank you for all that you do brother @Kaepernick7.”

In September 2016 Kaep announced his pledge to donate 1 million dollars to various charities that work in oppressed communities. “I’ve been very blessed to be in this position and make the kind of money I do, and I have to help these people. I have to help these communities. It’s not right that they’re not put in the position to succeed or given the opportunities to succeed.”

It’s Time for Blood Donation Equality, Too

For several decades, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has refused to accept any blood donations whatsoever from “men who have sex with men (MSM)” – in other words, gay and bisexual men. Amidst the growing criticism of this ethically and scientifically unjustifiable ban, the FDA recently released a proposal to modify it. Yet this proposal, which would allow only celibate MSM to donate blood, is essentially just as bad as the original policy.

Fortunately, the same public activism that drove the marriage equality movement can move us towards blood donation equality as well. Proponents of LGBT rights can advance this cause, for example, by submitting a public comment on the FDA’s proposal by July 14.

The FDA has received 189 comments as of this writing; let’s shoot for at least 500. You can submit your comment here. My comment, which you are free to copy or modify as you see fit, is below:

I am writing to express concern about the proposed revision to your blood donor deferral criteria for gay and bisexual men (MSM). Our knowledge of HIV transmission and the experience of other countries in adopting safe, reliable, and nondiscriminatory donor eligibility criteria indicate that a one-year deferral, while marginally better than the lifetime deferral currently in place, would continue to stigmatize gay men without improving the safety of the blood supply.

While the prevalence of HIV is higher among MSM than among the general population, an individual’s risk of contracting HIV from sexual contact depends both on the probability that a sexual partner has HIV and the probability that HIV will be transmitted through a given type of sexual contact. As a result, many individuals who engage in unprotected heterosexual intercourse with multiple partners have a greater risk of contracting HIV than gay or bisexual men who use protection, especially if those gay or bisexual men are in committed relationships.

In fact, the BloodDROPS study you commissioned found rates of HIV prevalence among MSM blood donors lower than rates of HIV prevalence seen in the general population. These results suggest that MSM who engage in riskier sexual behaviors already abstain from donation, and that they would continue to do so if provided with a more appropriately-constructed questionnaire.

I strongly urge you to strike items IX and X from your recommendations for an updated donor history questionnaire. I also urge you to strike the footnote that puts “anal, oral, or vaginal sex, regardless of whether or not a condom or other protection is used,” into the same category. Those items could be replaced with the following recommendations for deferral in the DHQ:

1. A history in the past twelve months of anal sex with multiple partners or of unprotected anal sex,

2. A history in the past twelve months of unprotected vaginal sex with multiple partners.

Making this change would not require new resources. It would preserve blood safety, end the FDA’s discrimination against gay and bisexual men, and improve the educational value of donor education material. And it would also bring the US policy in line with policies in place in Mexico, Spain, and Italy. A recent study of Italy’s policy, instituted in 2001, found that the country maintained the integrity of its blood supply after it discarded its ban on MSM in favor of unprejudiced deferral criteria.

I believe ending deferral based on sexual orientation entirely is the only way to simultaneously avoid discrimination, preserve the safety of the blood supply, and maintain the FDA’s credibility. Thank you very much in advance for considering my proposed revision.

Watching ‘Cat Summer’ Music Video Makes A Donation To Charity

While it might have been hard to be a cat at Christmas, summer is a whole other story.

Watch Grumpy Cat, Nala Cat, Hamilton the Hipster Cat, Oskar the Blind Cat and Klaus celebrate the warm weather in a Friskies music video, “Cat Summer.” The video pays tribute to Colonel Meow, who passed away earlier this year. Each video view equals one meal donated to cat charities nationwide in Colonel Meow’s name (up to one million meals).

In an interview with Grumpy Cat’s owner, Tabatha Bundesen, and Oskar the Blind Cat and Klaus’ owner, Mick Szydlowski, The Huffington Post got to learn what it’s like to own a famous cat:

Tardar Sauce aka Grumpy Cat first got famous after her picture was posted on Reddit in 2012. How fast did things escalate after that?
Bundesen: Overnight [the picture] had over 20,000 views, then a video on YouTube was posted right after and got over a million views within 36 hours. Then we got invited to the local news station. Within the first year we signed up with Friskies.

How have things changed for Oskar since he became an Internet sensation?
Szydlowski: For Oskar the world is pretty much the same. He’s been playful and happy since day one. He’s just happy to be surrounded by people coming by the house in Seattle to visit us. He’s as spoiled as ever.

Oskar the Blind Cat has a severe form of microphthalmia, which means the globes of his eyeballs are greatly reduced in size. Did you have any experience caring for animals with disabilities?
Szydlowski: We had no experience with blind cats, so we didn’t know what to expect. Through Oskar’s publicity we met lots of people with cats with similar conditions. We learned as went along.

What will Grumpy be doing this summer?
Bundesen: She’ll be having some fun partying with some of the other cats.

Does Oskar have a favorite Internet cat, besides his best friend Klaus?
Szydlowski: Out of all them Grumpy Cat is his favorite. He met Grumpy in December, and they took a nap together on the chair (nothing scandalous happened). Grumpy is very mellow so it was easier for Oskar to get a bearing on her.
