NBA Player Donovan Mitchell Will Donate $45,000 To Fund the Education of Jacob Blake’s Children

The latest round of protests has been centered around the police shooting that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin, when a police officer shot an unarmed Black man in the back seven times as it was caught on video. Jacob Blake, who is paralyzed from the waist down due to the shooting, was shot in front of his three children while they were in his vehicle. NBA basketball player Donovan Mitchell has vowed to financially help Blake’s children with the sales from his latest sneaker release according to The Hill.

The Utah Jazz guard will be donating $45,000 toward the education of Blake’s children. Sneaker company adidas has agreed to match his donation to bring the total of the funds to be given to the Blake children to $90,000.

The basketball player took to Instagram to announce to his more than 3 million followers last week.

“This one is different for me. For the first 45 hours of the #DONISSUE2 spidey-sense drop, I will be donating $45k of the proceeds to support the education of Jacob Blake’s children. I’ve also partnered with Adidas who will match my donation for a total of $90k. #createdwithadidas @adidashoops @marvel

Blake’s three sons are 3, 5, and 8-years-old. They were in the backseat of a car when they witnessed Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey shoot their father seven times in his back.
