An Ohio man's idea to raise a few bucks to make potato salad for the first time has netted more than $36,000.

Zack Danger Brown asked for $10 on the popular crowdfunding website Kickstarter.

"Basically, I'm just making potato salad. I haven't decided what kind yet," he wrote.

As of Tuesday morning, donations had reached $36,920.

A man claiming to be Brown on Reddit expressed gratitude for the outpouring of support to make his "dream" come true.

He plans to have a potato salad party for all his backers willing to fly to his home in Columbus.

"Potato salad seems to unite people of all backgrounds and I think that's really wonderful," Reddit user ZTBrown wrote.
