Meet 4-year-old Noah from Brooklyn, NY, who loves SpongeBob sooo much that he managed to purchase $2,618.85 worth of SpongeBob popsicles from Amazon and had them sent to his Auntie's house. If you are wondering, that's 51 cases, containing 918 popsicles.
As (truly!) adorable as this story is, Jennifer Bryant, Noah's mom, is a social work student at NYU and simply cannot afford this. Amazon will not take back the popsicles, and Ms. Bryant, mom to 3 boys, doesn't know how she's going to be able to pay this off, in addition to student loans and all of her family's other expenses.
All donations make a difference, so let's work together and help Jenny out!
Thank you so much; we're so grateful for your support!
NOTE - May 4, 2021: Thank you SO much for your mind-blowing generosity and support. We're so grateful to have made back the $2,618.85 in a mere 24 hours (!!!). As a parent to a child living with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), all additional donations will go towards Noah's education and additional supports. We cannot thank you enough. Truly.
