College student’s joke turns into viral fundraiser for children’s hospital


Carson King was joking when he held up a sign asking for beer money during a college football pre-game show. When cash started flowing into his Venmo account, the 24-year-old decided to donate it - minus the cost of a case of beer - to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital. He’s raised thousands so far with help from Busch Beer and Venmo.
