Talk about successful crowdfunding. An Ohio man named Zack "Danger" Brown has raised over $50,000 on Kickstarter to make potato salad, and there's still 24 days of fundraising to go.
Brown's campaign is simply titled "Potato Salad" and had a goal of raising $10. As the coffers grew, he went from promising to make more potato salad to renting out a party hall and inviting "the whole Internet to the potato salad party."
"The Internet is going to give me some money. I'm going to make some potato salad. I'm going to give bites to some people and whatever we end up having left over, we're going to have to figure out how can we use this money," Brown said in an interview with CNBC's "Closing Bell."
