Bernie Sanders Meme, A Millionaire Business.

At Joe Biden’s inauguration, those who have successfully purchased Bernie Sanders sweatshirts will receive a warning at the end of their online ordering: due to excess demand, it could take six to eight weeks to ship. When they went public last Wednesday, they sold out in less than half an hour. At the end of last week, the team of social party members offered the Sweatshirt again on the official website for 45 dollars (37 euros) and added 27 dollars (22 euros) of T-shirts. On Monday, there was no sign of any merchandise, but there was a lot of profit. Sanders’ team reported on Wednesday that they have raised $1.8 million, which will be used for charity in their home state of Vermont.

The photos taken at Biden’s Jura soon activated a large group of Internet innovators, who turned it into hundreds of memes and spread them rapidly. Dressed in a thick jacket, woven gloves and a flap, the senator went from a role on a friend’s sofa to a member of the scientific group at the 1927 Solvay conference. “Jane (wife) and I are surprised by the creativity of so many people in the past week, and we are happy to be able to use my reputation on the Internet to help Vermont residents who need help,” Sanders said in a statement.

Part of the money raised will be used for lunch on wheels, a project to provide nutritious meals for the elderly and people of different abilities in social welfare homes. Another will go to feeding Chittenden, Vermont’s largest food bank, and the last will go to the cold foundation, which is trying to reintegrate young people into society through snow sports. Sanders warned that while he welcomed the money raised on his website, it did not “replace” what he could do in Congress. “I’m going to do everything I can in Washington to make sure that workers in Vermont and across the country get the help they need in the worst crisis since the great depression,” he said.

It’s not just the senior senator’s website, it’s his image that has generated philanthropic benefits. Tobey king, a 46 year old Texas resident, crocheted a mini Bernie in a green Mini military jacket, mini mitt and mini mask. When the image of Sanders appeared, he decided to sell the doll on eBay. This item will be sold to the highest bidder. The final price was $20300, and eBay doubled its contribution to the cause to a total price of $40600. Kim’s husband lost his job because of the flu, and since then, she has been selling woolen dolls to help her family.

In 2016, when Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton in the primary, a Vermont elementary school teacher gave the senator a pair of gloves she knitted. Four years later, he received a lot of requests to copy gloves. Thousands of supporters of the former presidential candidate want to cover their hands with the same gloves they see on social media after the inauguration. But Mr. Jen Ellis stopped knitting gloves and was reluctant to resign in response to requests. “I’m a teacher and I’m a mother, which makes me very busy. I can’t make 6000 pairs of gloves, and every time I type my email, I get orders from hundreds of people, “Jewish people familiar with the matter said.

The brand of the clothes Sanders wore that day celebrated free advertising. However, the senator’s explanation may not be the best comment: “in Vermont, we dress so we don’t catch a cold, we don’t worry about fashion.”
