It’s safe to say we live in a digital world, where almost anything a person could want is just a push of the button away.
Unfortunately, a Brooklyn mom learned the hard way that when a child wants something, they will most certainly push that button – hundreds of times in a row.
Jennifer Bryant says her 4-year-old son Noah bought hundreds of SpongeBob popsicles from Amazon. A mother of three handling household expenses along with students loans, the $2,618.85 purchase put Ms. Bryant in quite a bind.
Luckily a woman who took a class with Bryant set up a GoFundMe for the family. As of Friday morning (May 7), more than $11,000 had been raised.
The fundraising effort has already exceeded its goal, and extra funds will reportedly go toward supporting Noah’s education and anything else he may need.
For their part, Amazon says they are attempting to speak with Noah’s mom about the issue.
“We are aware of the Bryant’s story and are working to connect with them directly,” an Amazon spokesperson told PIX11.
