Crazy Money Day – Pandemic Hoarding

It’s Crazy Money Day!

On March 1st, two brothers cleaned out Chattanooga stores of hand sanitizer. Then, one drove across Tennessee and Kentucky filling a U-Haul truck with more. Back home, one brother started listing sanitizer on Amazon. 300 bottles sold out immediately for between $8 and $70 each. He called it “crazy money”.

Amazon saw him profiting from the pandemic, pulled the items, and Tennessee’s Governor enacted an anti-price-gouging law. You see,  “…the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.” (1 Timothy 6:10) Now, money’s not the problem, it’s our attitude towards it. The brothers ended up donating nearly 18,000 bottles of sanitizer.
