Carson King made his debut on ESPN's "College GameDay" last month. The Iowa native -- and his now-viral "Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished" sign -- grabbed the attention of millions at the time. Now, what started as a light-hearted plea for extra beer money has turned the 24-year-old into a nationally recognized saint.
The sign, which advertised his Venmo username, sparked a quick reaction from TV viewers. King scored $400 in under 30 minutes, and by the end of the first day, that number had climbed to over $1,000. But because he's a better human than all of us (oh, c'mon, don't lie), he pledged "all but enough for a case of Busch Light" to the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.
The donations kept rolling in too, and soon after, Venmo and Busch Beer vowed to match King's contributions. Now, nearly a month since his initial "GameDay" cameo, they've raised over $3 million. According to People, the ISU Cyclones fan presented the whopping $3,004,000 check to the Stead Family Children's Hospital on Friday, alongside patient Camdyn Reisner.
