Usher contributed $10,000 to the H.O.M.E. (Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure) charity in Lithonia, Georgia earlier this week. The donation comes as part of former NFL player Colin Kaepernick's ongoing efforts on behalf of the charity which included raising $1 million with help from other celebrities over the course of ten days.

"Day 10 of my #10for10! Thank you @usher for choosing H.O.M.E. for the #MillionDollarPledge," Kap tweeted Wednesday afternoon (Jan. 31). "We're donating $10k each to them for a total of $20k! It's been an honor to work for the people and donate $1 mil to orgs fighting for social justice! See it all on http://kaepernick7.com."

"This was an opportunity to do something major, and you did it," Usher said in a video posted to Kaepernick's Twitter account on Wednesday. "You have raised $1 million. I'm happy to be a part of the completion of that $1 million. Everyone that has done something around this is amazing. This is a collaborative effort. As a result of us helping each other, we all become stronger."
