Some stories start off sad and end up being really good in the end. That’s exactly what today’s #TellMeSomethingGood is all about.
A guy in Massachusetts named Matt Goodman sadly lost his dad to cancer six years ago, but got a surprise gift from him on his 21st birthday last weekend.
Before he passed, his dad John gave Matt’s sister a $10 bill, and said he wanted to buy Matt his first beer. Matt used it to buy a Bud Light, which was his dad’s favorite.

Once the people at Budweiser heard about the story they sent Matt eight more 30-packs!
We're raising one to your pops, Matt. He got your first beer and the next one's on us. https://t.co/G29VzkzqAc

Now people from all over the world are sending Matt money on Venmo, trying to buy him a beer. It’s gotten so big that he’s asking people to donate to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute instead.
What a great cause and heart-warming story all around. Love this.
Appreciate all of you asking for my venmo, but instead if you wanted to send money feel free to donate any amount to dana farber they did a lot for my dad so that would be much appreciated! https://t.co/sMVImMdqeI
