Behold the awesome power of the internet.

Just days ago young Sam Griner (who we all know as ‘Success Kid’ from the Internet) appealed to the world to help his dad get a life-saving new kidney.

Almost $100,000 has poured to an online fund to help out his dad Justin who has been on dialysis since 2009.
