Ravens' Boldin Picking Insurance Tab For Needy Families

In these tough economic times, it's nice to know that there are those willing to step in and help the needy, much less one of our own Baltimore Ravens players. Anquan Boldin is picking up the tab for 2,000 families on $50,000 life insurance policies. The policies will pay the eduction costs for the children in the tragic event that the parent(s) do not live to provide that for their kids.

A story by Aaron Wilson in the Carroll County Times detailed the charitable efforts of Boldin, who was signed to a four year contract after being traded to the Ravens prior to the 2010 NFL season. Despite the lockout, Boldin's financial future is secure and he is willing to offer help to many children who otherwise would most likely fall between the cracks in the system.

Many Ravens have charitable organizations that they have lent their names to and give in and around the Baltimore community as well as their colleges and hometowns, all in return for the opportunity to play in theNFL and reap the financial benefits that come along with it. Many are not multi-million dollar athletes such as Anquan, but they still work to raise much needed funds for causes close to their hearts. Thanks to all the members of the Baltimore Ravens for thinking of others less fortunate than them, which unfortunately, is not as common as perhaps it should be around the league.
