They helped the Buffalo Bills end their 17 season playoff drought, so Bills fans across Western New York and the country are donating thousands to a charity headed by Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.
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 and his wife Jordan have a foundation that supports seriously ill or physically challenged children and their families. The AJD Foundation has received more than $37,000 from Bills fans since Sunday night's playoff spot was secured.
On Facebook the Bills announced they're sending chicken wings to the team, but fans wanted to give even more.
More than 1,700 people have donated, many of them donating in increments of 17 dollars. 17 dollars for the 17 seasons the Buffalo Bills have gone without a playoff appearance.
You helped us, now it's our turn to help you! #FootballIsFamily https://t.co/haKy3IaIPH
