So this just happened. Our Minnesota Vikings just lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 38-7 in a heartbreaking, gut-wrenching loss on the heels of one of the greatest game-winning plays in NFL history. It's a big blow. But we are Vikings fans, we will bounce back! Tomorrow is a new day, next year is a new year, and we will NEVER stop loving our team!

But on top of that, seeing photos and videos of some Eagles fans bombarding Vikings fans with beer cans, insults and being told by police to leave the game for their protection, that was even more heartbreaking. It would be easy for us to get mad, easy for us to welcome them to our home town with that same level of respect, but that's NOT us.

We have the best fans! We are truly a fan base with integrity, a fan base with a heart. A fan base who last week raised more than $200k for the opposing team's kicker.

SO LET'S DO IT AGAIN! Let's channel all of this heartbreak and insults and negative energy and turn the ultimate cheek. Let's welcome the Eagles to our house in two weeks by presenting them with a great big check supporting their charitable foundation, a great cause that has served more than a million low-income children in the Philadelphia area. Let's raise $38,000 ($1,000 for every point that they scored against us ;))

Let's show them what this fan base is made of and welcome them with our version of some Brotherly Love!

Skol and God bless!

Quick update for you all, we've been in touch with Go Fund Me and the money will be donated directly to the Eagles Charitable Foundation's Pay Pal account on Feb. 25.

The final amount (less Go Fund Me's platform fees) will be just over $13,500!

I've sent a note to the charity to let them know the donation is coming and will let you all know if we receive a response!

Best,
Jessica

Thank you all for your continued support of this campaign! As I write this, we are less than $100 away from the $15,000 mark. $15,000!!! How incredible!

We plan to keep this open until the Super Bowl in hopes that donations will keep trickling in, but we do realize that unless a major miracle happens, we will be short of the $38,000 number, which is absolutely fine. The Eagles Charitable Foundation is an amazing cause and we know all of this money will go to fund some incredible programs for low income kids. It was never really about the specific amount anyway, more about spreading a message of sportsmanship and kindness and we believe that messages was heard loud and clear, thanks to all of you!

The money will be donated directly to the charity through Go Fund Me once we close the campaign and we haven't had any contact with the charity yet, but I will definitely share any response that I get from them with all of you.

What an incredible thing this has been to be a part of and my husband Matt and I want to thank all of you for your donations and shares. With so much negativity in our world today, it's so awesome to be reminded of the good in people. It's also an excellent reminder of how a little bit of kindness, can go along way!

Thank you, God Bless and Go Eagles! ;)

Wow, more than $14k! It would be awesome to reach that $15k mark so if you haven’t shared the link yet, please consider doing so.

And it looks like we may not hit that $38k number, but that’s okay, as it was never really about the amount raised, more about the gesture and message, and that has been heard loud and clear!

Also, it’s sure every dollar will be put to good use by the Eagles Foundation and will do a ton to help low-income kids in the Philly area.

Thank you all for your support!
