What started as a $10 quest to make a potato salad has transformed into a $10,000 crowdfunding campaign. The project started by Zack Brown to make a potato salad crossed the financial threshold Monday.

"Basically I'm just making potato salad," writes Brown on his Kickstarter page. "I haven't decided what kind yet."

As of Monday afternoon, the project has over 1,400 backers and raised $10,233.

Throughout the course of the campaign, Brown as added new stretch goals, such as "better mayonnaise," a live stream of the potato salad's creation and a "potato salad party."
