Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been widely known for being one of the “good guys” in the NFL, and he has further maintained this reputation.
The quarterback started a campaign called “Pass for Peace.” This campaign is being used to raise money and awareness for domestic violence victims, which is even more useful now considering the outbreak of domestic violence among NFL players.
Wilson shared his vision for this campaign. “I want us to Pass the Peace to support victims of domestic violence. The idea behind Pass the Peace is simple: It’s a promise. I’m sharing my love for you. I want to take care of you. I am here for you,” the Seahawks quarterback said to The Players’ Tribune.
Wilson said that he will be passing the peace to retired shortstop Derek Jeter and pop star Justin Timberlake.
In the Players’ Tribune article, the quarterback goes into detail about his vision for his campaign, and he reveals that he was a bully while growing up.
