Chance inspires Michael Bennett to donate.

A few days after Chance The Rapper announced that he would be donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools, Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett vowed to donate all of his 2017 endorsement money.

That money will be used to "rebuild minority communities through s.t.e.a.m programs," as Bennett outlined in an instagram post today. Additionally, Bennett says that he'll donate half of his jersey sales to programs that would provide proper nutrition to inner-city communities.

In a lengthy caption on IG, Bennett wrote,

"The system is failing our kids, and it will be up to the community and our leaders to help keep the hope alive by focusing on improving our education system and the future of our kids. Any company that decides to invest in me, just know that you’ll be investing in opportunities and providing inspiration for these families- many who feel unnoticed or go unmentioned."

All of this, Bennett says, was inspired by Chance's generous donation. 

Check out the post below.

"I was inspired by Chance The Rapper to ‘think bigger’ when he pledged one million dollars to Chicago kids and their school system. So, I’ll be joining him by investing in the future of our youth. The system is failing our kids, and it will be up to the community and our leaders to help keep the hope alive by focusing on improving our education system and the future of our kids. Any company that decides to invest in me, just know that you’ll be investing in opportunities and providing inspiration for these families- many who feel unnoticed or go unmentioned. I have decided to donate all of my endorsement money in 2017 to help rebuild minority communities through s.t.e.a.m programs, as well as initiatives that directly affect women of color in hopes that we can create more opportunities for our youth and build a brighter future. In addition, 50% of the proceeds from my jersey sales this year will go to programs and initiatives to support inner-city garden projects, as it’s not only about providing opportunities in education and arts, but to help provide the right nutrition and access to healthy living to all. I’m asking all professional athletes to join me by donating a portion of your endorsements this year to a cause of your choice. We can make a difference. It’s up to us to help plant seeds of hope and help fuel the future. Power to the People, Michael Bennett”
