Oakland Raiders safety Karl Joseph is entering his third season in the NFL, and he’s using his platform in the league to make an impact in the community. The former West Virginia Mountaineer has always been very outspoken about his Haitian heritage, and this offseason, Joseph took a trip to Haiti with Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril to aid families in need. No. 42 assisted in the building of a restroom for kids, and hosted a football camp for them as well.

Joseph shared the experience on his Instagram account, take a look.

It's not every day you get to meet the President of Haiti, but the Raiders safety was granted that opportunity during his trip to Haiti.
