  • A man who was looking for a way to raise a little beer money says he is donating the nearly $30,000 he got after holding up a sign on national TV to a children’s hospital. >> Read more trending news   Carson King took advantage of ESPN’s “College GameDay” which was broadcast from Ames, Iowa, last Saturday, to hold up a sign asking for money to restock his dwindling supply of Busch Light beer, according to a story from CNN. King’s sign, which read, 'Busch Light Supply Needs Replenished,” included details on how to donate to his Venmo account – a mobile payment service -- should anyone want to help. According to King, within 30 minutes he had more than $400 in donations. When the donations reached $1,600, he tweeted that he’d donate the money to the University of Iowa’s Stead Family Children’s Hospital – minus the cost of a case of Busch. The hospital sits adjacent to the school’s Kinnick Stadium. Often children who are able will watch the game from the hospital's windows. Busch Light’s social media team saw King’s tweet about the donation and decided to make one of their own. The beer makers pledged to match King’s donation, and to supply him with some beer. When Venmo saw King’s tweet and the offer from Busch to match it, the company vowed to do the same. King, who works for on a rapid response team at Prairie Meadows Casino, attended Iowa State University for two years. His mother, Dana Archer-King of Prairie City, told the Des Moines Register that she knew what her son planned to do, but never imagined it would turn out as it did. 'He had told me about it last Wednesday and, probably like most moms, I just laughed and thought, 'Great, this will be my proudest moment,'' Archer-King told the Register. 'He's not a wealthy kid by any means,' she said. 'I'm not sure how many 24-year-olds would just give that kind of money away. We're all so in awe with what he's doing.' King said he has received more than $29,000 as of Wednesday morning. With his donation and those of Busch and Venmo, the hospital stands to get a $90,000 windfall.
  • A high school student with special needs was left unattended on a school bus 'throughout the duration of the day,' a spokesman said. >> Read more trending news  Birmingham City Schools officials said they will conduct an investigation after Tuesday's incident, AL.com reported.

  • Police in Miami Gardens, Florida, are investigating after reports of a burglary at a wig warehouse. WSVN reported that authorities responded to Prime Trading International, a wholesale hair and wig warehouse, Tuesday morning.  Prime Trading International Vice President Rakib Hossain told the station he got a call from his security company and checked the cameras set up at the warehouse from an app on his phone. >> Read more trending news  'I have been here for eight years and this has never happened before to me. It is a big loss for me,' Hossain told WFOR. 'Some products here are very exclusive and worth up to $800. Surveillance video shows a truck backing in to the front door and ramming it at least three times. They tried three times to smash it. They knew exactly what they were doing. They knew where the expensive products were and they knew everything about the stock room.' Hossain told WFOR that the wigs were worth $70,000 to $80,000. One employee, Aaron Harris, told WSVN some wigs were going to a good cause. 'We were going to donate upwards between probably $10,000 to $20,000 worth of hair,' Harris said. Hossain said he will have more security at the warehouse going forward.
  • After a bikini barista shop in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood closed after failing to attract enough customers, a new coffee shop employing shirtless men has taken its place.  >> Read more trending news  As first reported by Capitol Hill Seattle Blog, Dreamboyz Espresso opened on Sept. 13. The owners say it’s currently the only coffee stand operated by shirtless men in Washington state.  The stand is located in a parking lot at the corner of Broadway and Harrison. Ladybug Espresso, which used to occupy the space, closed recently after a lack of business  But the new all-male barista stand is turning a lot of heads.  I saw a hunky guy in there,” said Jacob Haeger, who lives in the neighborhood. “There was a topless guy sitting in there with swollen pecs and whatnot,” he said.  “I saw it was men running it and that was even more awesome. They’re in these kind of brief bikinis and they’re all very good-looking young men, so I think both men and women will enjoy the difference,” said Shoma Goomansingh, another Cap Hill resident.  The Dreamboyz stand is still in its soft open phase. The two baristas put up the sign with the slogan, “Hot Guys Serving Hot Coffee” on Tuesday, and it immediately got people to turn heads and pull out their phones to take a picture. “I worked for Starbucks a couple years back and I really enjoyed being a barista,” said Brandon Peters, one of the new employees.  “I felt like why can women do it but men can't?” said Ja’shaun Williams, another one of the new employees. The owners of the new coffee stand also own 45 LadyBug Bikini Espresso stands with female baristas across Washington and Oregon.  Their Cap Hill location closed a few months ago after a lack of business. The owners said their customers and employees suggested hiring men to serve coffee instead.  And now they’ve decided to go for it. Even people who aren't so into the idea of bikini baristas with women said they're finding this stand has a different vibe.  “I thought it was fun. I've never seen anything like it and I was like yeah, hell yeah this is Capitol Hill. Bring it on,” Haeger said.  People who passed the stand all seemed to think there's no better place for it than in Seattle's Pride central.  “I definitely like the idea of equality with it now. A male stand and female stands. I really like it and I think it's a cool form of a little bit of entertainment with your coffee,” Haeger said. “Everyone's been very appropriate and respectful. I appreciate it, I love it,” Williams said.  The owners are planning a grand opening after all the new signage is up.  The restaurant Teriyaki & Wok that shares the same parking lot said the previous stand with mostly topless women brought in a lot of complaints, but they are happy about the change. 
  • A clothing label is facing criticism after unveiling school shooting-inspired hoodies at a show in New York last weekend. >> Read more trending news  According to the Washington Post, Bstroy, founded in 2012 by Brick Owens and Dieter 'Du' Grams of Atlanta, revealed the controversial pieces from its upcoming spring collection during New York Fashion Week. The company took to social media to share photos of the line, including shirts bearing the names Sandy Hook, Stoneman Douglas, Virginia Tech and Columbine – all sites of deadly mass shootings. The distressed shirts are riddled with holes.  The Vicki Soto Memorial Fund, dedicated to a teacher killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut, slammed the brand in an Instagram comment. 'As a Sandy Hook family, what you are doing here is absolutely disgusting, hurtful, wrong and disrespectful,' the comment read. 'You’ll never know what our family went through after Vicki died protecting her students. Our pain is not to be used for your fashion.' Frank Guttenberg, the father of Parkland, Florida, shooting victim Jaime Guttenberg, also panned the designers in a tweet. 'If any of my followers [know] anybody involved with this clothing line, please ask them to stop it immediately,' he wrote. Owens told 'Today' that the line was meant as 'a comment on gun violence and the type of gun violence that needs preventative attention.' He also shared the following on his Instagram page: 'Sometimes life can be painfully ironic,' the post read. 'Like the irony of dying violently in a place you considered to be a safe, controlled environment, like school. We are reminded all the time of life's fragility, shortness and unpredictability, yet we are also reminded of its infinite potential. It is this push and pull that creates the circular motion that is the cycle of life.' Read more here or here.
