BUFFALO N.Y. — Chiefs fans generosity following their historic divisional-round win over the Buffalo Bills has paid off.
Oishei Children’s Hospital tweeted out they raised $178,000 for the Patricia Allen Fund, named after Josh Allen’s grandmother, who passed away in November 2020, just before a game Allen played in. There were 9800 donations within a 24 hour span.
The donations were in $13 increments, representing the 13 seconds it took for the Chiefs to tie the game and send it to overtime.
The idea was sparked by a Chiefs fan account on Twitter called “Chiefs Kingdom Memes,” urging fans to send $13 to support the foundation.
Owner of the account, Brett Fitzgerald, initially intended for fans to donate to Patrick Mahomes foundation, 15 & the Mahomies, but took a page from Bills Mafia, as they’re known for constantly donating to opposing teams or players foundations.
Chiefs fans should be proud as their charitable efforts have more than made a huge impact.
