He wanted to "SpongeBob SquarePants" Popsicles, so he used his mom's Amazon account and ordered hundreds of them worth $2,600. She was horrified. But somebody started a GoFundMe to help her pay the non-refundable bill. And everybody wins. The supplier gets paid. The GoFundMe raised extra money for Noah's education. And Noah got the Popsicle.
