A 24-year-old Iowa man made a jokey sign asking for beer money and ended up making a donation to a children’s hospital.
When American football fan Carson King cheekily held up a sign on TV asking for people to send him money to buy beer, he didn’t expect to receive a cent.
Now, just over a week on, he’s raised more than a $1m (£800,000) and is donating the funds to a children’s hospital.
“I was hoping to make a couple people laugh! I never expected to be on TV, and definitely did not except anyone to send any money,” he told Sky News.
Referencing a beer brand, Mr King’s sign read “Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished” and gave his username for mobile payment service Venmo.
