Philanthropy through sneakers is a cornerstone of the sneaker community that continues to gain awareness and admiration as player exclusives, rare samples, and other prized sneakers are sought-after with an emphasis on raising funds for organizations, movements, and more.
Los Angeles Rams’ wide receiver Cooper Kupp is auctioning off signed Air Jordan 11 Cleat Lows following his appearance at the American Century Championship, which is a golf charity tournament with celebrities to raise money for several organizations. This year, the tournament raised money for the Equal Justice Initiative, the Center for Disaster Philanthropy COVID-19 Response Fund, and the Notah Begay III (NB3) Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund.
The auction is now live with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Advancement Project California, a racial equality organization that is known for research, advocacy, and policy.
