The Players Coalition has helped raise a ton of money to win the war against coronavirus.

Anquan Boldin — who played for the Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals and Baltimore Ravens during his career — appeared on the “Today” show Wednesday to talk about how the group has raised more than $3 million during the pandemic and where the millions of dollars will go.

It sounds like it’ll do a lot of good in Baltimore, Detroit and Atlanta. Watch Boldin break it down below.

Good for Boldin and everybody else involved with the Players Coalition, which started as an organization founded by athletes focused on racial equality and criminal justice reform. During the pandemic, it’s pivoted a bit as pointed out by the former Ravens receiver.

Right now, people need all the help they can get. Coronavirus threw a nasty right hook against America and we’re fighting our way back.

Every single penny helps and the Players Coalition is stepping up in a big way.

During the crisis, there’s no such thing as too much help. Everybody has to come together and find a way to help others.

If you have the resources and platform to be of assistance, then you should use it. That’s what Boldin and the Players Coalition are doing.
