“Beer Money” Fan Says He’s Raised over $1 million for Children’s Hospital

Football fan Carson King got more than enough money for a case of beer after holding up a sign with the request and his Venmo account info during ESPN’s College GameDay.  King says he’s got over $1,000,000 that he plans to donate to a children’s hospital in Iowa.

After King’s request went viral, he received a flood of donations.

“I didn’t think I would make anything, it all started as a joke,” he said.

Busch Beer and Venmo also caught wind of his plans, and pledged to match his contribution.

Even though he ended up raising money for a great cause, King says his mom wasn’t too thrilled with the idea of her son bumming booze money on live TV.

“The University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital does amazing work for kids and families all over the country,” King added. “I just wanted to help them out in anyway I could.”
