Senator Bernie Sanders turned his inauguration day meme into a charitable enterprise. He's created a sweatshirt with his inauguration day mitten-wearing picture and selling it on his website for $45 a shirt. The proceeds from the sweatshirt will go to the Vermont Meals on Wheels program. Right now, the sweatshirts are sold out but you may still order online at berniesanders.com. It may take three to six weeks but all the money goes to seniors in need.
All this attention to this mitten wearing man's attire is the craze and its been a nice break from the rhetoric on social media. Boy, sometimes a little humor goes a long way. There are three groups of slideshows and still more to come.
Two years ago a Vermont teacher gave the sustainable mittens to Sanders as a gift. On a late night talk show with Seth Moyers, Sanders aid, "I was just trying to stay warm." The gift has the world a Buzz and those with photoshop skills busy.
If there are more pictures out there, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org I'll add them to the collection.
