Washington Redskins past and present are coming together to assist those in need in Zambia.
Pro Football Hall of Famers Darrell Green and Art Monk — The Legends — and current Redskins Kedric Golston and Kirk Cousins — The Young Guns — are competing to see who can raise the most money to save children’s lives with Every Child Fed.
“Every Child Fed is a organization that is committed to helping the malnourished in Zambia by building a factory that can produce a peanut butter paste that will be able to provide nutrition for children,” Cousins told The Redskins Blog. “It will also provide jobs, so it’s a self-sustaining system.”
Cousins’ hope is that between the four of them, they can raise enough to get the building process started soon.
“We’re trying to raise money to build that factory between now and Christmas,” he said. “We’re really trying to get a big campaign to get as much resources donated as possible to make that factory get built as soon as possible because children are dying of malnutrition every day.
“So the longer it takes to get that factory built, the more valuable lives are not being fulfilled.
Cousins also said it’d be pretty nice to beat the Hall of Famers.
“We’re hoping to raise $100,000 and they’re kind of making a competition between Darrell and Art and Kedric and I, so hopefully Kedric and I can raise more on our side than Darrell and Art. Hope we can stick it to them. It’s a big fundraising campaign as of right now.”
Here’s Monk and Green’s video message:
And here’s Cousins and Golston:
If you donate, regardless of which team of Redskins you chose, know that you’re helping those in need.
