Seattle Seahawks fans are giving back to the Bay Area in what's become a war of good deeds.

Seattle fans have created a campaign on GoFundMe.com called “12th Spirit.” The goal is to raise $20,000 for UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in San Francisco.

As of Thursday afternoon, the fundraising page indicated they were less than $3,000 away from their goal.

The campaign is in response to this one by 49ers fans. They wanted to raise money for a pro-Niners billboard in Seattle. When they were overwhelmed with donations, they promised to donate the rest of the money to the Seattle Children's Hospital.
