Angels By Nature is the latest foundation getting a signal boost by Colin Kaepernick’s Million Dollar Pledge.

Off the field, Colin Kaepernick has been a far more powerful figure than he was taking snaps for the San Francisco 49ers. His latest endeavor with his Million Dollar Pledge is going to affect the city of Houston in a major way.

Early Wednesday morning, the exiled quarterback announced on Twitter that Angels By Nature, the non-profit run by local superhero Trae Tha Truth would be the recipient of $10,000. The donation is the latest in a series of partnerships Kaepernick has launched with other celebrities for his Million Dollar Pledge. Recently he’s received donations from Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and Serena Williams to name a few.

T.I. was the man to answer Kaep’s call on the challenge and he matched the GQ Citizen of the Year’s $10,000 donation with $10,000 of his own. The news comes one day after rapper Snoop Dogg matched Kaepernick’s donation to a Dallas chapter of Mother’s Against Police Brutality.

“I’ve seen the work Trae’s been doing and it’s been amazing,” Kaepernick said. “We here to help the people.”
