Vick Makes Donations

According to the Falcons, half of quarterback Michael Vick's $10,000 donation to charity requested this week by the NFL went to the family of an Atlanta firefighter who died after suffering injuries while battling a fire on Thanksgiving.

The other half, according to the team, went to the Warrick Dunn Foundation to help single mothers purchase homes.

The league fined Vick $10,000 and requested that he donate another $10,000 to a charity of his choice after he directed an obscene gesture at fans following last Sunday's loss to the New Orleans Saints. Vick and his representatives agreed to the penalties.

Is there a better human being in the NFL than Warrick Dunn? If so, I've never heard of him. Plays hard, speaks soft, gives back.
