A lot of Buffalo Bills fans blamed the official job for their team’s 33-27 extra-time loss first Tampa Bay Buccaneers Last Sunday. However, their anger toward officials eventually turned into something of a positive.

Bills fans have begun donating to Vision Impairment Advancement, a local nonprofit that supports people with vision loss, as a nod to “blind” officials. Most donations come through a $17 raise to represent a quarter of Bills Josh Allen’s clothers number.

“People in Buffalo, when they perceive an opportunity to help, they just take advantage of that opportunity,” said Tammy Owen, VIA’s president and chief executive officer. News 4 Buffalo. “It makes you feel great, not only about the customers we serve but about the amazing nature of the people who live in this community.”

According to News 4 Buffalo, more than $20,000 has been raised in $17 increments as of Wednesday afternoon alone. VIA told News 4 Buffalo the total is likely to be “much higher” when it takes into account contributions of other currency sizes.

Ray Zylinski, a visually impaired worker at VIA, said: “This support means a difference for a large number of people.

Bills Mafia has proven philanthropic before. In 2018, after Cincinnati Bengali midfielder Andy Dalton completed a winning game with Baltimore Raven to send Bills to the knockout round, Buffalo fans donated $100,000 to Dalton’s charity in less than 48 hours.

A year later, after the death of Grandma Allen in November 2019, Bills fans donated $1.4 million to Buffalo’s John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital. The hospital later honored Allen’s grandmother with her own wing: the Patricia Allen Pediatric Rehabilitation Wing.

The Bills (7-6) hope to end their two-game losing streak against home fans this Sunday, as they prepare to host Carolina Panthers (5-8) at 1 p.m. ET.
