Now that the NFL’s season has come to a close (mini-camp starts in 4 months!), the influence of its players continues.
The NFL Players Association is teaming up with Voila (the leading telecom company in Haiti), its parent company, Trilogy International Partners and in conjunction with The Jack Brewer Foundation (a non-profit organization founded by former NFL safety Jack Brewer) to bring NFL players to Haiti to continue to raise awareness and relief funds.
The service trip will bring continued awareness about the ongoing need to rebuild and support this impoverished country. The NFL players committed to this relief effort include William Joseph, Jonathan Vilma, (both Haitian-born), Ryan Grant, Bryant McKinnie, Danny Clark, Barrett Green, Kevin Little, Jack Brewer, Sidney Rice, Abe Elam, Ronald Fields, Bobby Engram, Abdul Hodge, Jeremiah Finley, Charles Fisher, EJ Henderson, Champ Bailey, Corey Chavous, Anthony Becht, Robert Griffith, Fred Robbins, Darrelle Revis, Matt Spaeth and more.
Jack Brewer, Founder of JBF Worldwide says, “every corner of America has contributed resources and attention to the needs of this affected country. The NFL and NFLPA are looking to create a sustained engagement in Haiti’s recovery through this partnership.”
While last week we got to see football at its finest, this week we will get to see football players at their finest as they bring the spotlight to help Haitians in need.
