When Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson left the game in the second half with a concussion, Bills fans immediately started searching for his charity.

Once it was found, Bills fans posted links on Reddit and Twitter to show their support for Jackson.

"It started around 11:30 last night, and our donation box just started flooding with donations from Bills fans for Lamar. It's just been overwhelming -- in the best possible way," said Nikki Grizzle of Blessings in a Backpack, whose mission is to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

According to the nonprofit, more than 11,000 fans donated nearly $300,000 in 24 hours.
