Fans of the Buffalo Bills are well known for their generosity throughout the community. They often rally around other fans in need, purchase countless items from 26shirts.com, and attend fundraisers and events supporting the foundations from some of their favorite players.
These same fans are now showing their gratitude to Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who completed a 49-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd on Sunday, by flooding the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation with donations. The playoff hopes of the Bills were in the hands of Dalton and the Bengals, as their victory over the Ravens clinched the playoff spot for Buffalo.
In the 24 hours since the 1st donation came in, over 2500 donors and just over $57,000 and counting! Last update for the night! I will update tomorrow. We can’t thank y’all enough!— Andy Dalton (@andydalton14) January 2, 2018
Donations have been coming into the foundation in increments of $17, signifying the number of seasons it has been since the Bills were in the playoffs. The number figures to climb throughout the day, as the story has gained traction nationally.
The Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation supports physically challenged children and their families in the Cincinnati and Fort Worth areas. If you would like to make a donation, or to learn more about their work, please visit andydalton.org.
