Daunte Culpepper took a generous step in helping children that have come into this world with the same disadvantages Monday. At a press conference at Winter Park, Culpepper pledged $500,000 over the next 10 years to the African American Adoption and Permanency Program – money that will come from the new contract extension he signed last month.
Culpepper was born in a Florida prison, where he was put up for adoption. His 62-year-old adopted mother took him in, along with a dozen other adopted children, and raised him, which is why the charity is near to his heart.
In the last two years, the AAAPP has placed more than 300 African American babies with adoptive families, making it one of the most successful programs of its kind in Minnesota.
