If you are a Facebook or Twitter user, it is likely that you would have seen the 'success kid' meme.
The internet is flodded with this kid's image making fun of various situations generally related to either 'success' or 'satisfaction'.

Many of the donors thanked Sammy Griner for putting a smile on their faces for the past eight years in the form of a meme. Some were even willing to donate their kidney in Gofundme.com.

"I wanted to say so glad to see amazing people brought together by a meme, I cannot believe this is 7 years old, I have to wait until my paycheck clears to be able to donate, but for now, you are in my prayers, I wish I could donate a kidney, but I first have to make sure mine are functioning first to begin with. Prayers and hopefully a donation on the way soon, always."

"If you hadn't taken a picture of your son and posted it to the internet so many years ago, no telling how well this would have gone. I'm so glad that God works in mysterious ways. I pray that everything will go well for your family."
