K.J. Wright realizes how great life is for him and is looking to make a difference around the world.
Last summer, KJ Wright went on a trip this offseason to Kenya and realized there was an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of some of the children he met in Kenya.

I’ve been waiting weeks to announce this! I’m going back to Kenya next year to get a water well built at the school I went to visit! They blessed me so I have to return the blessing! Please join me in giving this community and basic necessity we sometimes take for granted! Let’s do this together! Click the link in my bio to donate #Tackles4Kenya #WaterIsAWright #TheWaterProject 🕷
To try to help make a difference in Kenya, Wright is donating $300 for every tackle he records this season, with the money going to construction of what he hopes will be two fresh water wells for the village.
Wright originally planned to donate $250 per tackle, but because a knee injury kept him out of six games, he upped the total to make sure the campaign can reach its goal. Wright hopes he and fans willing to participate can raise $50,000 to cover the cost of two wells.
