A four-year-old New York boy took his love for SpongeBob ice lollies to a new level when he ordered a staggering $2,618 worth of the popsicles from amazon on his Mum’s account without her consent.
Noah Ruiz, from Brooklyn, ordered 51 cases containing a total of 918 popsicles delivered to his aunt’s house.
Amazon initially told Noah’s mother, Jennifer Bryant, that they wouldn’t take back the ice lollies – leaving the social work student stuck with the bill. However, the online retail giant has since been in contact with Jenifer to find a solution – and thankfully, the SpongeBob saga has a happy ending.
Amazon now says they will donate the proceeds of the popsicles to a local charity after a GoFundMe page set up to support Jenifer raised more than $11,000.
The family says all additional funds will go towards Noah’s education, Noah is on the autism spectrum.
“As a parent to a child living with ASD [autism spectrum disorder, all additional donations will go towards Noah’s education and additional supports. We cannot thank you enough. Truly,” Jennifer Bryant wrote on the GoFundMe page.
