Joshua Perry's idea could help many in need.
By now many have heard the news that Nike made Colin Kaepernick the face of its newest campaign.
There were many positive reactions, but with the good comes the bad. Some people were shocked and disappointed in the company for backing the former NFL quarterback, and they began to take measures into their own hands by destroying their Nike products.
First the @NFL forces me to choose between my favorite sport and my country. I chose country. Then @Nike forces me to choose between my favorite shoes and my country. Since when did the American Flag and the National Anthem become offensive? pic.twitter.com/4CVQdTHUH4— Sean Clancy (@sclancy79) September 3, 2018
Former Ohio State star Joshua Perry had an awesome message for those that are unhappy with keeping their Nike apparel.
So any people with a burning desire to get rid of their @Nike (or other gently used clothing/shoes for that matter), please send to: @JoshuaPerryFF P.O. Box 164, Lewis Center, OH, 43035 and I’ll find an appreciative home for your stuff. https://t.co/1IAW3fEAuQ— Joshua E Perry (@RIP_JEP) September 4, 2018
Great question! They aren’t jerks for their opinions. They’re jerks for ruining good products that could be donated to folks that would appreciate them. A lot of kids will go to school this fall with battered shoes and clothes that don’t fit. https://t.co/FOmCQs07h0— Joshua E Perry (@RIP_JEP) September 4, 2018
Giving the clothes and shoes to the less fortunate certainly beats burning and cutting them for a few seconds of internet fame.
