Peyton Manning earned $24,800 for his charity by saying “OMAHA”

Not only is Peyton Manning heading to his third Super Bowl, he made $24,800 for his charity during the AFC Championship Game.

Eight businesses will donate the money to “The Peyback Foundation” after they committed to donate a combined $800 for each time he said the word “Omaha” at the line of scrimmage. Manning said “Omaha” 31 times during Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

“This has been terrific for us,” said David G. Brown, president and CEO of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, which headed up the effort. “Before Friday, we had calculated that news coverage of Omaha had generated the equivalent of about $10 million in advertising.”

That is a lot of money for saying “Omaha”, Congrats Peyton.
