Chiefs’ fans pulled off a class act after donating more than $250,000 to a Buffalo Children’s Hospital after the team beat the Bills in overtime during the playoffs.

It all started after a call went out to fans of Chiefs Kingdom to “donate $13 to Josh Allen’s foundation to commemorate the drive that tied the game with just 13 seconds left and the best playoff game in Chiefs history,” a post on Twitter read. The post included a link to the Patricia Allen Fund so fans could donate to the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, reported Bills Wire Wednesday.

“Thank you @OxfordPennant for your continued partnership and helping our hospital here in Buffalo!” the tweet read. “That brings the total to an incredible $255,017! Thank you #ChiefsKingdom for this amazing support for our children’s hospital and the kids & families we care for. #BillsMafia.”
