Cardinals defensive end Chandler Jones is no stranger to giving back to his community, and he did so again on Tuesday by visiting Valencia Newcomer School in Phoenix as part of its anti-bullying campaign.

Jones and the Cardinals’ cheerleaders joined members of the Be Kind People Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to teaching the virtues of kindness to young kids, during an assembly at the school meant to spread positivity and discourage bullying among the students.

This latest act of charity comes just two months after his last one, in which he pledged to donate $20,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for every sack that he recorded during the last two games of the 2018-19 season.

He only managed to get one sack in those two games, but doubled his donation to $40,000 anyway.
