After going viral last month on live television for his requests for Venmo donations to add to his beer funds, Carson King has donated the money he has received to a children’s hospital. During the ESPN College GameDay football match-up between the University of Iowa and Iowa State University in September, Carson King was spotted with a homemade sign that stated, “Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished.” The sign also listed his Venmo account for viewers to see in the hopes that they would contribute to his beer needs. After receiving much attention and income from his gesture at the football game, Carson decided to contribute the earnings to children in need.
… Busch Beer, Venmo and several other corporations made a promise to match the amount he raised. The football fan has now raised $3 million and is donating the money to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
