Bills Mafia is at it again.
Baltimore midfielder Ravens Lamar Jackson was forced out of Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Bills due to a concussion in the last game of the third quarter. Jackson was unable to return to what ended with Buffalo winning 17-3.
Shortly after the match, Bells fans began donating to the Blessings in a Backpack Foundation, a charity favored by the Ravens. The organization was inundated with more donations than it could collect overnight. As of Sunday evening, $ 265,000 has been raised from 10,400 donors, Nikki Grizel, the organization’s chief marketing officer, wrote in an email.
The organization, which has a branch in Louisville, works to feed elementary school children on weekends when they are not in school to receive federal aid for meals. Jackson was a star at the University of Louisville and donated $ 25,000 in 2018 to help start a new program at a school there.
