Bills’ fans are donating to Lamar Jackson’s favorite charity after Ravens’ QB’s concussion

Buffalo Bills fans ended their weekend in unique style following their 17-3 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

After the injury to Ravens’ quarterback Lamar Jackson in the game, someone posted on Reddit under — “Here’s Lamar Jackson’s favorite charity” — a screenshot of the user’s donation receipt and no text.

You can imagine that the charity — ‘Blessings in a Backpack,’ — which feeds elementary school children on weekends when they are not in school, is feeling grateful for the support they received.

According to the charity, the Louisville chapter had raised more than $265,000 by Sunday night.

The team tweeted Sunday, linking to a tweet sharing news of the donations from Bill’s fans with the words,’Respect, @BuffaloBills and #BillsMafia.’

The Bills fans are known to lend their support to different things, but they’re once again showing there’s more to just smashing through tables in freezing weather or displaying painted chests.

“Myself and a few friends decided that wasn’t the way we wanted this playoff game to go, so we decided to find out what Lamar’s favorite charity was and show him some love,” said William Burke, the Bills’ fan who initiated the donation effort.

Previously, Bills’ fans also raised money for a local children’s hospital in the wake of the death of Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen’s grandmother in 2020, according to ESPN.
