UPDATE: Josh Allen Spending His Birthday Treating Local 6th Graders
We told you this story a week or so ago, and have a heartwarming update.
A 6th grade class in Brocton were studying social media for an ELA project. And thanks to Josh Allen, they got a delicious lesson -- and the star QB will be making good on his promise to bring pizza to the kids this Friday -- his birthday.
Here's How it Happened
The Bills Mafia Babes group tweeted on behalf of one of their members, looking to get a response from Josh Allen.
The teacher was hoping to demonstrate a lesson in the power and reach of social media.
They posted about a project their class was doing in ELA, where students created some Buffalo Bills images. The teacher then said she would share them on social media to see how many people shared them, commented, or reacted.
The teacher's objective with the project was to show the power and reach of social media, both good and bad.
To increase the stakes, the teacher told her class if Josh Allen reacted to the tweet, she'd treat them to a pizza party.
Something tells us that Josh Allen must love kids and pizza (and Twitter) because this morning he responded to the tweet, after it has been retweeted by Bills writer Ryan Talbot.
The kids drew pictures related to the Buffalo Bills and their favorite players. Some of the kids' versions of the Buffalo Bills logo is far better than Josh Allen's attempt at it.
It's a good reminder of just how social media works -- sometimes it just takes the right person noticing to make something happen.
