Bills fans flood Buffalo hospital with donations in honor of Josh Allen’s grandmother

Bills Mafia hasn’t been able to support the team in person this season at home games. But they have supported one of their own in a very big way.

Bills fans have given more than $100,000 to Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo since Sunday, in honor of Bills quarterback Josh Allen’s grandmother. Patricia Allen, 80, passed away on Saturday.

Josh decided to play, and he played very well in leading the Bills to a win over the Seahawks and Buffalo’s first 7-2 start since 1993.

Many fans have donated in $17 increments, since that’s the number Josh wears. But you don’t have to be a Bills fan to support Josh Allen, a great young quarterback and (based on our interactions with him) a great young man.

Click here and give $17.

It’s $17. That’s peanuts. If enough of you do it, it’s a giant pile of peanuts that will go great things for the hospital, and that will show Josh and his family that all football fans appreciate him.

  1. As a Seahawks fan I will donate $44 for the number of points Buffalo scored on us. I challenge other fans to match it.

  2. That is outstanding. Reminds me of when Buffalo fans donated to Andy Dalton’s charity after his win ended the playoff drought.

  3. I’m a Lions fan, but I’ve been a fan of Josh Allen since Wyoming, and can’t help but love the Mafia.

    $17, I’m in.

  4. Thank you for posting the link and getting this out to ALL football fans.

    You are a class act, Mike!

  5. Mike, thank you for posting the link to increase awareness. Up to $150k now and still climbing.

    Thanks to everyone outside of the 716 for donating!!!

  6. This is why I’m proud to be an American. Regardless of who you root for on Sunday, we’re all on the same team. Thanks for promoting this awesome cause, Mikey!

  7. My son is actually at Oishei Children’s Hospital in the NICU, and his nurse told me about this and she had tears in her eyes. What an awesome thing, and makes me so proud to be a member of the Mafia!

    I hope all is going well for you, your son and your family.

  9. St. Jude is just a couple dollars more. Please let’s not neglect the kids who need this same support.

  10. This is what Bills Mafia is all about folks…not getting drunk and slamming through tables. The founder of Bills Mafia runs a company called 26 Shirts where they team up with Buffalo athletes and create a one time only t-shirt or hat design and the proceeds of the sales go towards a charity of the athletes choice.

    I love my city, the city of good neighbors….GO BILLS!!!

    All the best to you and yours. Hang in there!

  12. Read the article, just received a $50 check for winning my fantasy league last week.
    I will donate the $ 50 to Oishei Children’s Hospital. Thank you Florio for this story.
    I wish the best for politicssuck’s son.

  13. Florio NEVER picks the Bills but I appreciate his acknowledgement of our fans. Buffalo Bills fans are a VERY tight knit group. Honestly, I instantly make a friend anytime I see someone in Bills gear anywhere in the world. Thanks for the reminder Mike, I meant to donate yesterday…#BillsMafia

  14. Way to go Bills Fans! Way to go fans of other NFL teams that feel a kinship to Bills Fans. I’m happy and proud to support your cause.

  15. At a time when “positive news” is so rare, comes this article. Yet several of the comments have thumbs down votes? Worse, some thumbs down votes for the guy who has an infant son in that hospital??? Outrageous!
    What in the world is going on in the country? C’mon man! This wonderful response to Allen’s loss should be 100% THUMBS UP!
    Thanks Mike for giving in some national light.
