Matt Ryan Donates $500K to Help Black Community in Atlanta

That's my unproblematic NFC South quarterback. Matt Ryan established a GoFundMe with a goal of raising $2 million, so he went ahead and out up the first 25 percent himself.

In a statement, Ryan said, "Last week I made a commitment to listening and learning, and one of the messages that hit home for me was the difference between reacting to a situation and responding to a situation. For far too long I have reacted to social injustice with empathy and silent support but failed to follow through with active support. I feel the time has come to RESPOND. For ALL of us to respond.

"I see my city hurting, which is why I'm starting a fundraiser to help improve the community for people of color in the city of Atlanta. I'm kicking it off with a $500K donation and am asking you to consider donating as well. Whether big or small, you will be joining me in making a difference."

Matthew Thomas Ryan is the GOAT both on the field and in the community. Good for him for making a real difference and trying to create some change.
