College student who made thousands off GameStop stock praised for generous act

A 20-year-old college student who made nearly $30,000 off his GameStop stock has been lauded for using some of his newfound money to help sick children. Hunter Kahn studies mechanical engineering at Cornell University. He struck big when GameStop stock jumped to a record-high toward the end of January. The student then decided to head to a local GameStop in Minnesota, where he bought six Nintendo Switches. He later donated them to the Children’s Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis. “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 explained in an Instagram post. The Cornell student has since been praised for his generous act. “Good job Hunter!!” one person commented. “This is so nice,” another added. “Ur awesome dude”
