The success kid meme started in 2007 after mother Laney Griner posted a photo of her son Sam on Flickr. The photo was originally captioned "I hate sandcastles," but the internet soon turned the photo into a triumphant reaction image. Sam is now 13 years old and in 2015, the family used their internet popularity to create a GoFundMe to help pay for Sam’s father’s medical care and a kidney transplant.
