Michael Vick to donate proceeds of book-signing event to charity
Atlanta, GA, United States (4E Sports) – Philadelphia Eagles’ Michael Vick said he will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from a book signing event to a nonprofit group that gives assistance to male juveniles in detention center, the quarterback announced on Sunday.
Vick, who held his latest book signing event inside a church at Victory for the World Church in Stone Mountain, had a successful signing event after cancelling the previous ones due death threats.
The Eagles quarterback recently released an autobiography entitled “Michael Vick: Finally Free,” which received mixed results from readers.
“That’s a very small selective group of people who still have their own form of hatred,” Vick said, during a brief press conference. “But you know, I think the most important thing for me to do is to continue to stay positive and continue to do the right thing because that’s what’s going to make a difference…You gotta move forward.”
Nevertheless, fans lined up for the chance to get the signature of Vick on their book while some believed that the former dog fighting ring financers has already changed for the good.
“I believe he paid for his mistake and you can’t keep nailing him to the cross,” Cassietta Cook, of Ellenwood, who arrived at the book signing event, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
