Four-year-old Noah really wanted those popsicles. He used his mom's Amazon account to order $2,600 worth of popsicles. Somebody started a GoFundMe page to help her pay the non-refundable bill.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A kid named Noah, like many 4-year-olds, believes in doing stuff all by himself. 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. It's MORNING EDITION.
