COLUMBUS, Ohio -- An Ohio man set out with a simple goal - raise $10 to make some potato salad. As of Monday afternoon, he has raised enough to make more potato salad than he ever could have dreamed of - more than $11,000. And there's still 25 days to go.
Zach 'Danger' Brown, set up the kickstarter campaign with a very simple premise, "Basically, I'm just making potato salad. I haven't decided what kind yet." More than 1,500 backers have chipped in to help Brown in this pursuit.
The online fundraiser has been updated many times with new information about Brown's potato salad-making plans. He says he will now be renting out a party hall for the event and a crew will film the process.
