We've all heard the stories from Sunday's NFC Championship game: Philly fans throwing beers at Vikings fans, taunting them and making crude signs about Vikings superfan Millie.

Even Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney had some words for those fans.

"These clowns need to learn how to act like adults," he told KARE 11's Jana Shortal.

But not all Eagles fans behaved that way, and some are even trying to make amends with Vikings fans. On Tuesday, The Mike Zimmer Foundation said on Twitter that a "flood of donations" has come in from Eagles fans, most apologizing for how fans treated the Vikings in Philly.

The Mike Zimmer Foundation, founded in memory of Zimmer's late wife Vikki, aims to give back to Minnesota youth.

Vikings fans have also showed their charitable side since the NFC Championship loss: fan Jessica Brennan Leibrock started a GoFundMe to raise money for the Eagles Charitable Foundation, which helps children in the Philadelphia area.

As of now, the GoFundMe has raised more than $11,000.
