SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) --What started out as a joke campaign on Kickstarter has turned into a viral sensation. An Ohio man who wanted to raise $10 to pay for his first ever attempt at making potato salad has now raised more than $50,000.
Zack Brown, a software developer, started the campaign just six days ago.
On Good Morning America, Brown said his campaign started as something silly but now he wants to turn it into something positive.
"I want to do the most good that I can do with this. Kickstarter has a Terms of Service that prohibits giving money directly to charities, but I've asked people on Twitter and I want to ask people here today just how we can take this moment, this campaign, and this money and do the most good with it," Brown said.
