Check out How Colin Kaepernick Spent His Birthday
While many decide to celebrate their birthday by spoiling themselves, Colin Kaepernick decided to give to those in need instead.
Just a few years ago, Colin Kaepernick began his “Know Your Rights Camp” campaign. This campaign’s goals are to raise awareness for higher education, to properly apply law enforcement to the appropriate situation, as well as self-empowerment. Kaepernick decided to take a stand and create this organization to assist and empower those who have fallen into the trap of not knowing their rights, and making sure it does not happen again.
Many people have been inspired by Kaepernick’s campaign, taking to Twitter to praise the athlete.
What a beautiful example of taking something negative that happened to you and turning it into a positive for yourself and others. I continue to be inspired by this man’s strength, grace, and character. #KnowYourRightsCamp #yoga #PowerTalk https://t.co/iI96iMriwN

Colin Kaepernick also recently turned 32. The athlete spent his day giving back to a community in Oakland, CA with the help of his “Know Your Rights Camp”. Together, they spent the day giving out backpacks which were filled with socks, soap, snacks, and other basic necessities. Along with this, he bought lunch for everyone from a local food truck.
Thank you to Colin Kaepernick and the Know Your Rights camp for supporting People’s Breakfast Oakland this past Sunday. It was great having y’all join us and help us serve the people materially by providing a food truck, backpacks with hygiene kits and much more. ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/TG3P72o3bu

It was very humbling to see such a well known celebrity settle down and spend his birthday around people who are fighting to make it in today’s society. Colin Kaepernick surely knows his rights, and knows how to make his fellow Americans feel loved and important.
