Days after free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick helped secure an airplane to send aid to Somalia, the former San Francisco 49ers player donated $50,000 to Meals on Wheels American, one of the organizations that faces budget cuts if President Trump's budget is approved by Congress, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The donation comes just one day after the 45th commander-in-chief said that NFL teams weren't signing Kaepernick because of him.

Besides the two donations made this week, the quarterback-turned-activist pledged in September to donate $1 million of his salary to community organizations, SB Nation reported. 

“I will donate one million dollars plus all the proceeds of my jersey sales from the 2016 season to organizations working in oppressed communities, 100k a month for 10 months," he said.

A few other organization he's donated to include the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Black Youth Project, and Communities for Police Reform, according to his website.
