After making thousands off GameStop stock last week, a college student is using his new fortune to help others.Hunter Kahn, a 20-year-old mechanical engineering student at Cornell University, cashed out nearly $30-thousand in GameStop stock and spent a portion of it buying video game systems for Children’s Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis.
Kahn’s donations include: six Nintendo Switch Lites, multiple games and gift cards, as well as screen protectors and cases. The hospital values the gifts at more than $2-thousand and says it’s young patients are already enjoying playing with them.
Kahn says using the money to help kids at the hospital felt better than making the money and he encourages others who have profited to be generous as well. “As a beneficiary of the recent events on Wall Street I think it is important that myself and others pay forward our good fortune,” he writesin an Instagrampost.
