Kickstarter’s Potato Salad Fund Going Towards Benefit Concert for Homeless

First, there was Woodstock. Now, there’s PotatoStock. Specifically, PotatoStock 2014, a benefit concert driven by the unusually successful Kickstarter campaign for Potato Salad by Zach Danger Brown.

Unlike most Kickstarter projects Brown’s Potato Salad garnered massive media attention due to its idiosyncratic funding goal of $10. The campaign would continue to surpass Brown’s potato dreams. He managed to gather $55,492 from 6,911 backers.

With the extra $55,482 dollars, Brown intends to raise money for charity at a potato salad-themed music festival:

We have a giant outdoor space reserved (The Columbus Commons) for September 27th, 2014, from noon to 8pm. The show is free and all proceeds from selling concessions will go to a permanent fund to end hunger and homelessness in Central Ohio.

Brown is still seeking a headliner, so all potato salad musicians are encouraged to participate. As for the rest of the pledge benefits, Brown will actually fulfill them as promised. Yes, he plans to “say your name out loud while making the potato salad.” That’s 1,253 names!

I will say your name out loud while making the potato salad!!!!! You will get video proof of me saying your name while VERY slowly making potato salad. Will I be boiling potatoes? Chopping vegetables? Stirring the ingredients together? It’s a surprise! YOU WILL GET VIDEO PROOF

Backers who wants a bite of the potato salad will have to come to PotatoStock 2014.
