Kickstarter has become the go to place to raise funding for projects and has helped people raise millions for new innovative ideas.
Zack Brown though hasn't got a new innovative idea that he hopes to change the world with. Instead he wants to just make plain old potato salad. He was simply looking for $10 to make some potato salad.
Zack did this for fun, he wasn't expecting anything from it but something amazing happened. People started backing a lot more than just $10, currently he has raised over $1300 in less than two days!
As the funding has been going up he's been adding stuff to his listing. Here is his listing so far.
Basically I'm just making potato salad. I haven't decided what kind yet.
UPDATE: WE DID IT
$35 - I will make 4x as much Potato Salad. I know $40 isn't 4x $10, but you guys have earned it.
$75 - Pizza Party!
$100 - I will try two different Potato Salad recipes.
UPDATE #2: ALL THE POTATO THAT'S FIT TO PRINT
UPDATE #3: WOW YOU GUYS
We're making a lot of great progress. I think it's time for us to think about getting hats made. I added a new donor level for people who want hats. For those who are interested the hats could look like this: http://www.zazzle.com/i_love_potato_salad_mesh_hat-148005376484063142
$250 - Better mayonnaise (from the natural foods section)
$300 - Call a chef to get a better recipe
$350 - Make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe.
If you're crazy enough to help Zack produce some of the best potato salad ever, you can check out his Kickstarter listing and start backing him.
