A New York City boy named Noah Bryant, 4, ordered $2,618.85 worth of SpongeBob SquarePants popsicles (about 918 total) on his mom's Amazon account, which were then sent to his aunt's house.
Though the boy was all smiles in a photo with one of the frozen SpongeBob pops, the splurge was no laughing matter for his mom, Jennifer Bryant. The sweets treats are unfortunately nonrefundable, inspiring a family friend to launch a GoFundMe campaign to cover the cost of the unsupervised shopping spree. On the fundraising page, friend and organizer Katie Schloss explained that Bryant, a mom of three, is studying social work at New York University and couldn't afford the SpongeBob spread. The GoFundMe pitch went live on Monday, and $7,780 in donations have poured in as of Thursday, smashing the goal of $2,619. "Thank you SO much for your mind-blowing generosity and support," Bryant wrote.
