Just a few days after the Chiefs’ win over the Bills, fans in Kansas City raised $178,000 for Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo.
The Oishei Children’s Hospital has been connected to the Bills ever since Josh Allen lost his grandmother, Patricia Allen. Bills fans donated in $17 increments last year to show their support for the star quarterback’s family.
Chiefs fans started donating in increments of $13 this Tuesday in honor of the 13 seconds it took for Patrick Mahomes to lead the team into field-goal range at the end of regulation. A Chiefs Kingdom Facebook group came up with this idea.
As you’d expect, NFL fans are loving this gesture from Kansas City fans.
“This is awesome, but not surprising. Hell yes,” a Chiefs fan tweeted.

This is truly a heartwarming gesture, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the donation total increase over the next few days.
Kudos to Buffalo and Kansas City for having such classy fans.
