There's this adorable meme that's been hugely popular online for awhile. It's called "Success Kid" and I love it! It's got to be my favorite meme. Perhaps you've seen him around:

Like all photo memes, the people in them are real people. Now the Success Kid, Sam Griner, is taking over the Web in a new way. Thanks to his Internet fame, he's now successful in helping save his father's life.

His father, Justin Griner, is in need of a kidney transplant. So in order to help with the costs of the needed operation, the family started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for the surgery.

And help raise money it did. In just one week, the campaign reached its goal of $75,000 and then some, with eight weeks to go. As of Friday morning, the campaign stood close to $100,000.

Thanks to the Internet, the Griners will have enough money to cover the cost of the transplant and all the medications that will be required.

Now that's success!
