Falcons Captain performs on-field wonders, But also gave back to over 50 Charities in 2010

Atlanta, GA--  The Falcons have risen up to be Division Leaders and are fully on their way to a deep NFL playoff run.  Jonathan Babineaux, veteran Defensive Tackle, must believe in "paying it forward" and that good things come to those who give back because in 2010 he has given back to over 50 charities in local area.

As of January 2011, Jonathan Babineaux has donated to 51 community and non-profit organizations.  Jon babineaux donated home game tickets and special T-shirts.  Babineaux created his “Babineaux’s Unit” as a means to simply say “Thank You”.  Jonathan purchased approximately $40,000 lower-level tickets and custom-made t-shirts for Atlanta’s non-profit community organizations.

Also, Babineaux uses his donations to make a lasting impact in the lives of less fortunate children. 

Jonathan is the first NFL star to take blind, visually-impaired and deaf children to experience their first NFL game - an Atlanta Falcons game.
