Russell Wilson and Ciara showed their appreciation on social media recently while announcing their sign to the Seahawks. Russell Wilson went an extra step by gifting his team with 12,000.
This gift wasn’t in cash, it was in benefits. The QB just gifted the entire Seahawks offensive line with $12,000 in Amazon stock — totally $156,000 for the 13 players.
Along with his gift Wilson wrote a letter to each of his team members. The letter read,
“Every Sunday we go to battle together,” Wilson wrote … “You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family.”
“This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten.”
Russell says he wants to help his teammates prepare for life after football and believes stock in Amazon will help these players achieve their dreams.
“When I sat down to think of ways to honor your dedication a dozen different ideas came to mind. Some were flashy, some were cool, but I wanted to give you something that had a lasting impact. Something that would affect the lives of you, your family, and your children.”
“You have invested in my life … this is my investment into yours.”
The Seahawks play their 1st regular season game on Sept. 8 — we’ll see if his investment pays off!
