Thank you for you interest in Malik’s Gifts! This foundation was born out of my strong belief in the importance of showing thanks and care toward the people and communities that have lifted me up. I am deeply grateful for all those that join me in this endeavor as participants and supporters of our programs.
Growing up in Los Angeles, I learned about family, football, and the power of strong communities. In Jacksonville—the city that welcomed me with open arms and blessed me with the opportunity of a lifetime to play football wearing their jersey—I found that again.
Inspired by my family, team, and fans, I started Malik’s Gifts as a way to support people and animals in need of support to achieve the lives they hope for, honor those who have sacrificed, and lift up our community heroes. Every day, I’m working towards making a difference in the communities I call home, for the people I call my neighbors—being there, whenever and wherever they need me. I hope that you will join me on this journey to create stronger communities by giving back. After all, that’s what it’s all about.
