BROOKLYN — Donations poured in for a Brooklyn boy who bought hundreds of SpongeBob popsicles from Amazon.

Noah Bryant’s $2,618 purchase put his mom — a social work student at NYU — in a financial bind. Jennifer Bryant, a mom of three dealing with student loans, couldn’t afford the 51 cases of ice pops her son ordered.

That’s when a friend and the internet stepped in. A woman who took a class with Bryant set up a GoFundMe for the family.

As of Sunday night, it had raised more than $23,000, more than meeting the cost of the popsicles.

Extra funds were set aside for 4-year-old Noah’s education and any additional support he needs, according to the GoFundMe.

His mom thanked donators for their “mind-blowing generosity and support.”

On the fundraising page, Bryant’s friend wrote that Amazon would not take back the SpongeBob popsicles.

An Amazon spokesperson said the company is donating the cost of the popsicles to a charity of Bryant’s choice.
