As NFL players head to training camp this week, another touchdown is happening off the field. Caribu is an interactive video-calling platform that allows families to read and draw together long-distance. It secures its second investment from an NFL all-star, Dr. Jen Welter. Who is the first female NFL coach (Arizona Cardinals) and Founder of Grrrridiron Girls flag football camps for girls.
Dr. Welter joins NFL player Ricardo Allen as the second “Florida born” pro-athlete to invest in Caribu. Through their equity crowdfunding campaign on Wefunder.
During Dr. Welter’s storied career with athletes, she’s seen how training and game schedules can keep players away from their families for extended periods of time and Caribu is a natural remedy for never missing another bedtime story for all type of athletes while on the road. Welter stated, “Many of the players I work with use video-calls to stay in touch with their kids, but now being able to do an activity with them through Caribu will be a game-changer in making those calls more meaningful and memorable.” Ricardo Allen agreed, stating “Being a professional athlete I’m away from my babies a lot during training camp and football season. Traveling and long workdays. I understand the struggle of being away from my kids while also wanted to grow with them on a personal level as much as possible.”
Caribu and Dr. Welter are working on a larger football partnership to promote literacy and keep families connected which will kick off this fall.
