    With the amount of pink shirts I've worn to sporting events I've almost eliminated breast cancer. It's all about awareness.

    I'm not sure. I think the IRS put the 200 transactions or $20,000 in place because once you get to those levels it could be perceived as a sales business transaction (we all know it's not in this case) so it makes it easier for the TPSO.

    I know there have been instances on paypal where I buy stuff from people and I mark it as "gift" so I avoid the transaction fee.

    That’s how you get around the solicitation issue? You call it a gift? I always heard you put a camera up and called it film making.

    I wonder what the matches from Busch Light and Venmo mean? I know it is easy to match when it was at $10K, but now that it is getting to $100K, you would think they would put a cap on the match too. This could get to a million. So I'm taking their match with a grain of salt until it is done. Nothing against Busch Light and Venmo either if they decided to only "match" so much of it since now it is getting so much support and has went viral.

    They are going to match every penny unless they want to have a PR nightmare on their hands.

    The amount of free advertising they are getting is priceless. This story will be on Gameday again this week, and it's now making national morning shows. How many people have downloaded Venmo just to make this donation?

    I saw a tweet from Busch that sounded excited that he hit the $100,000 mark so I think they are in it for the good publicity.

    It's on their Facebook page. I don't think they have Twitter.

    Surely there's an Iowa law grad practicing in tax law that would be happy to provide Carson some pro-bono services. #ANL

    It may sit on Iowa's campus, but the Children's Hospital does amazing work for sick kids in the state. Sadly, I've had 3 friends with young kids go through there. From all I've heard, the staff and care are amazing and I know my friends' kids (none of them Hawkeyes, 2 ISU, 1 UNI) really loved the experience of watching the games. I threw some money Carson's way, this is just tremendous and the Iowa/ISU thing shouldn't matter here.

    I know we like to diminish it, but the wave is cool and I think it makes a difference.

    InBev has $1,000,000 in their couch. No clue about Venmo but it's a good investment, regardless.

    If you are a sick kid, and family, it has to be amazing. I'm all for anything that makes a sick kid smile.
