Though New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has been on the wrong side of some NFL-related stories from a public relations standpoint in the recent past, he has been remarkably charitable during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
First, he and the Patriots used their team plane to transport over a million masks for healthcare workers in the greater New England area. Now, Kraft auctioned off his Super Bowl LI ring.

There is still over a week left in the auction, but the price has reached $1 million. All the money raised by the auction will go to the All-In Challenge, which is aimed at reducing hunger during the global pandemic.
During Super Bowl LI, the Patriots pulled off a crazy 34-28 victory, during which at one point they trailed 28-3.

Kraft also said that when suitable, he will fly the winner of the auction in on a private jet for the presentation of the ring. He also noted that he chose that particular ring to symbolize the comeback society will make in the wake of the ongoing health crisis.
