Little Noah bought 51 boxes containing 918 SpongeBob lollipops through Amazon, which will not return the money to the child’s mother. However, the community has reached out to them.
A little four-year-old from New York City took his mother’s bank account a big slump by ordering a large number of SpongeBob lollipops worth nearly $ 3,000 on Amazon. The worst thing is that they are not refundable.
The mother, seeing that she had lost her money, told a friend, who told her that she would run a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to cover the cost of the accidental purchase.
While exactly how the mistake occurred hasn’t been released, in total, the little boy ended up ordering 51 boxes containing 918 SpongeBob popsicles, said the boy’s mother’s friend, Katie Schloss.
Noah’s mother initially thought she would have to pay the full bill for the pallets, as Amazon was unable to give her a refund of the money.
The thing is, the 44-year-old mother of three is pursuing a master’s degree in social work in New York City, and she said she had no idea how she could pay off the bill since she had to pay off her loans from student and cover the other expenses of his family.
To everyone’s surprise, it turned out that the fundraising campaign worked better than they expected since, by Wednesday morning, donors who had been in solidarity with the mother’s situation had already contributed no less than $15,191, which far exceeded the original goal of $ 2,619.
Noah’s mother thanked the donors for the generosity in a message she posted on the GoFundMe page. He said right there that the surplus money will go to educate his son, who has an autism spectrum disorder, as reported in The New York Post.
