On Sept. 14, Carson King attended ESPN’s “College Gameday” in Ames, Iowa. The sports channel was broadcasting the events ahead of the football game between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones. While the cameras captured in him in the crowd, King held up a sign that read “Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished: along with his Venmo account name.

“I didn’t think I would make anything, it all started as a joke,” King told CNN. But, it turns out a whole lot came out of it.

Within 30 minutes, King received $400 in his Venmo account.

He talked it over with his family and decided that he would use the money to buy one case of Busch Light beer. The rest of the money would go to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.

King’s plan to donate the money to the children’s hospital spread and more and more people continued to contribute.

Busch Beer and Venmo hear about King’s generous plans. Both companies agreed to match the donations.

By Sunday, Sept. 22, King had raised a total of $1 million.

King plans to keep the Venmo account open and accepting donation through the end of September. In addition to the joy of raising money for a good cause, King is also receiving a year’s supply of beer from Busch and has been dubbed an “Iowa Legend.”

The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital is celebrating all the support they’ve received.

On Twitter, they wrote, “What a week! We are overwhelmed by all of your generosity, and our hearts are full.”

Since there’s still about a week left in September, there’s still time for King’s campaign to grow even more.
