COLUMBUS, Ohio – A man set out to get about $10 to make potato salad over the holiday weekend and now has raised almost $10,000.

He goes by the name Zach “Danger” Brown and created a Kickstarter campaign to fund his adventure making potato salad for the first time.

Brown said on his fundraising page, “Basically I’m just making potato salad. I haven’t decided what kind yet.”

Potato salad fans helped Brown quickly reach his goal so he decided to keep upping the ante.

Things really took off.

He has raised more than $8,000 in just a couple of days and it seems there is no end in sight.

When he reached $3,000 he wrote that his kitchen is too small to throw a potato party so he is renting out a hall and  inviting “the whole internet” to join in.
