Carson King Fires Up Round 2 Of Iowa Children’s Hospital Fundraising
In 2019, College Gameday came into town for the Iowa vs. Iowa State football game, but the biggest story from that day was a simple sign.
Carson King stood behind the College Gameday presenters with a sign that read "Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished" along with his Venmo tag. After his account hit the $10,000 mark, he decided he would donate whatever came in to his account to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital in Iowa City.
After word got out about this young guy's generosity, the numbers skyrocketed, with matches from Venmo and Busch Light bringing the total to almost $3 million.
Now, two years after the initial fundraising push, Carson posted on The Carson King Foundation's Facebook page with a new sign.
"Round 2?" The sign read.
After the first day, the foundation raised over $58,000, which Carson wrote took nearly four days to reach the first time around.
As of around 10pm last night, Carson tweeted that they had raised $68,000.
