7. Giving Back To The Community

Let me say at this point that, if you haven’t found evidence that Drew Brees truly is amazing, you’ll find it now.

Drew Brees is an amazing person. What the quarterback does on the field is simply incredible. Now what he does off the field is just as, if not even more, remarkable. Although Drew Brees has made a lot of money in his lifetime, he has used a great portion of his earnings to help others, and give back to his local community.

For those who don’t know, Drew and his wife Brittany own and run the charity, “The Brees Dream Foundation”. This organization solely focuses on giving back to those who need it, specifically cancer patients, and struggling families.

“The Brees Dream Foundation” was founded in the year 2003, and ever since has raised thousands upon millions of dollars for those in need.

Other great aspects of the Foundation include, on the website specifically, it states that “The Brees Dream Foundation” has contributed more than $25,000,000 to Charitable Causes globally. “The Brees Dream Foundation” is also proud partners with Nike, Pepsi, Verizon, and Wrangler among other brands of companies.

Here is an abbreviated quote from the website, which can be found here.

"“The Brees Dream Foundation was founded in 2003 and is a reliable source of charitable funding globally. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and provide care, education, and opportunities for children and families in need. … We would not be where we are today without the endless support from our many partnerships and from those who donate to our cause daily. For that, we would like to personally thank all you who have donated your time, money, and effort into making the Brees Dream Foundation what it is today!”"
