A true icon, SpongeBob SquarePants has held out for more than two decades at this point. The Nickelodeon creation, which debuted in 1999, is now embraced by the younger generation, albeit ensuring that it will live on for years to come. A young kid from New York recently ordered thousands of dollars worth of frozen treats from Amazon featuring the animated character of Amazon. The problem? This happened without his mother’s permission.
Noah, a four-year-old SpongeBob fan from Brooklyn, New York, recently ordered over $ 2,600 in SpongeBob popsicles from Amazon. They were sent to his aunt’s house, worth all 51 cases. This comes from a GoFundMe page set up by Katie Schloss, a freshman Masters candidate at NYU Silver School of Social Work and friend of Noah’s mother. Schloss had this to say on the side.
“Meet 4-year-old Noah from Brooklyn, NY, who loves SpongeBob so much that he bought $ 2,618.85 SpongeBob popsicles from Amazon and sent it to his aunt’s home. If you’re wondering, that’s 51 cases with 918 popsicles. As (really!) adorable this story is, Jennifer Bryant, Noah’s mother, is a social work student at NYU and just can’t afford it. Amazon won’t take the popsicle back , and Ms. Bryant, mother of three boys, I don’t know how to pay this off, on top of student loans and all of her family’s other expenses. ”
The site was set up to help Noah’s mother recover the money she had unexpectedly spent. Unfortunately, Amazon was unable to take back nearly 1,000 frozen goodies, creating a precarious situation. The good news is that GoFundMe was hugely successful. At the time of this writing, more than $ 7,100 has been raised. In an update, Jennifer Bryant expressed her gratitude and stated that the additional money would be used for Noah’s education.
“Thank you for your amazing generosity and support. We are so grateful that we paid back the $ 2,618.85 USD in just 24 hours (!!!). As the parent of a child living with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Everyone additional donations go to Noah’s education and support. We can’t thank you enough. Really. ”
Raising children is not easy. It’s even harder to raise three kids while they’re trying to get a Masters degree in Social Work. On top of that, having a child with ASD causes very unexpected and frivolous $ 2,600 expenses and it is easy to imagine this turning into a nightmare.
As for SpongeBob outside of the popsicle world, things have been improving lately. After more than 20 years, the scope of the franchise has expanded. The third film in the franchise, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, was released on Paramount + earlier this year. Nickelodeon also has the Patrick Star Show, as well as Kamp Koral and other spin-offs in the pipeline. Those who would like to further help Jennifer Bryant and Noah can visit the GoFundMe page.
