Who do we appreciate?
What are we grateful for?
This is the place to turn your attention to the good stuff.
It's easy to worry and dwell on disappointments.
But things could usually be a lot worse.
You'll feel good sharing.
And you'll brighten the spirits of others.
So, tell me something good today!

Carson King , a die-hard Iowa State fan, hoped his homemade sign would be broadcast on national television during ESPN's College GameDay. He and his friends showed up at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, hoping to get a spot close to the stage. His sign read, "Busch Light supply needs replenished ~ Venmo ~ Carson-King-25".
$67,000 was sent to his personal Venmo account as of Thursday night. By Friday, that number -- including donations and matching funds -- had passed the $600,000 mark, and King's face was set to appear on his own set of Busch Light cans. As of 8:27 a.m. Monday, King’s Facebook page says the viral fundraiser has netted $1,065,000.00 to benefit the children’s hospital.King agreed to keep the donation option open through the last day in September.
King never thought his request for a case of beer would turn into so much kindness from others and an opportunity to help sick children in his home state.
When asked why he thought he should donate the money rather than keep it for himself, King said it was just the right thing to do.
His tweet said his intention was to donate the money to the University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital and it went viral.
It caught the attention of Anheuser-Busch and Venmo, who both pledged to match King's donation.
It is tradition at Iowa Hawkeyes football games for fans in the stadium to wave toward the hospital's windows at the end of the first quarter. "It's just a huge part of Iowa," King said. "They help out kids from all over the country.
"As Venmo's platform has continued to grow and evolve, we've seen our community use Venmo to send small payments of goodwill and random acts of kindness," a company spokesperson said.
"Those kids are incredible. They're going through such a hard time," King said. "I think it's important [that] any help we can get them, we should get it to them. Give them something to smile about at the end of the day."
