With season over, Colin Kaepernick gets busy with charity work

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick didn't wait long once the season ended to get deep into his charity work. 

Earlier in the week, Kaepernick donated shirts, hats, shoes, and books to men's shelters and orphanages (as posted by yourrightscamp on Instagram): 

Kaepernick also announced Friday he had reached the $300,000 mark in his pledge to donate $1 million of his 2016 salary to charity.

"Starting off the New Year strong!" Kaepernick posted on Instagram. "The third month of my Million Dollar Pledge is complete! $300k donated so far, $700k more to go toward the million to help people in oppressed communities! This month my donations went to UCSF for The Mni Wiconi Health Clinic Partnership at Standing Rock, Appetite For Change in Minneapolis, MN and Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation (SOUL) - Chicago, IL."
