Sen. Bernie Sanders has helped raise $1.8 million for charity by selling sweatshirts and t-shirts with the viral January 20th image of him sitting at President Joe Biden's inauguration. 100% of the proceeds will go toward Meals on Wheels Vermont and all items are currently sold out.

"Jane and I were amazed by all the creativity shown by so many people over the last week, and we’re glad we can use my internet fame to help Vermonters in need, But even this amount of money is no substitute for action by Congress," so Sanders.
