Busch Light pulled off an awesome move for Carson King after all the money he’s raised to help sick children.

King went viral after asking for money during College GameDay for beer. Instead of spending the money on beer, Venmo, Busch and King have raised more than $675,000 for the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, according to KCCI.

Now, Busch put his face on a beer can as a thank you for his incredible move.

This is an awesome gesture from Busch, and the whole thing is a feel good story from top to bottom. King raised a little money, the entire internet pitched in and then two massive companies matched the donations.

In a world with plenty of stupid stuff going on, this is a great reminder of what is possible when people come together.

Plus, how many people can say their face is on a beer can? Not many. Not many at all, and now King will be able to say that forever.

Props to everybody involved in this awesome story. The world of college football and beer came together to raise a ton of money for a great cause.

It’s stuff like this that we all love to see.
