The NFL Players Association (NFLPA), Washington, D.C., announced its inaugural NFLPA Jersey Friday campaign, which will be held Nov. 6.
Jersey Friday will be a chance for fans to show their pride by wearing an NFL jersey to work, school or play. The NFLPA is encouraging workplaces and schools across the nation to allow employees and students to wear their jerseys in exchange for a $6 donation to Got Your 6, an official NFLPA charitable partner that unites veteran-focused non-profit, Hollywood and government partners.
“The NFLPA’s Jersey Friday campaign is an incredible opportunity to celebrate our nation’s favorite sport and players, while also bringing attention to our nation’s veterans,” says Rob Gordon, president of Be The Change, the parent organization for Got Your 6. “All fans who participate will be directly supporting veterans and their families, and we thank them for doing so.”
One fan will have the chance to win a prize for sharing a picture of them in a jersey and a post about why the player they’re representing is their favorite. The winner will receive a donation to Got Your 6, along with signed memorabilia and a personal social media shout out from the player.
