Viral beer money request raises $1 million for charity; here are some spots for hammocking around campus

Today is Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Busch Light and raising money for a children’s hospital usually wouldn’t go together, but a college football fan has unintentionally brought the two together for a charitable cause.

Featured in the background of College Gameday, Carson King’s witty tailgating sign read “Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished,” along with his Venmo account. The sign garnered more money than intended and eventually King promised to donate the money to Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital — after covering the case of beer, of course.

“I thought it would just be a joke,” King told Good Morning America. “I didn’t think anyone would actually see it.”

King tweeted Sunday the fundraising effort reached $1 million in contributions, but has promised to keep his Venmo open until the end of the month to raise as much money as possible.
