KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Alex Smith era in Kansas City is reportedly over. And since the reported trade, Chiefs Kingdom is thanking him in a unique way.

Hundreds of fans have posted on Twitter saying they donated $11 to the Alex Smith Foundation. Smith wore #11 for five years with the Chiefs.

According to its website, the foundation "provides foster teens with the tools and resources needed to transition to successful adulthood by developing and promoting Mentoring, Education, Housing, Internship, Job and Advocacy programs."

The Chiefs highlighted the work of the foundation in this article.

This is not the first time in recent months football fans have thanked a quarterback with donations to his foundation.

After Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton threw a game-winning touchdown to beat the Baltimore Ravens in Week 17 of the NFL season, Buffalo Bills fans donated thousands of dollars to his foundation. The Bengals win sent the Bills to the playoffs.

The 4th and 1 Chiefs podcast is published once a week during the off-season.
