Why I Give: Gerald Everett

Rams tight end Gerald Everett reveals his motivation for giving back to the community.

Q: Why do you give?

A: I give because I know what it meant to me when I was younger, having others come and give back to me, my 10-year-old self. I want to be able to give that same experience to kids and teens now like how other people did for me back then.

Q: Since you've been a Ram, what is one of your favorite community outreach memories?

A: The Rams Playground Build at Figueroa Street Elementary School.

Q: Why was that your favorite community outreach experience?

A: Building the playground was my favorite so far because all of the kids were out there with us and we were able to interact with them.

Q: In what areas do you see yourself giving back during your NFL career?

A: LLS, which stands for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I first got started with the organization with my family – no one in my family has the disease, but I've gone to some luncheons and other events that they've had.

Q: If you could make one change in the world, what would it be?

A: Equality
