$40,600 Amount raised for charity. 

King promised 100% of the profits will be donated to Meals on Wheels, one of Bernie Sanders' favorite charities.  

Inspired by her efforts, eBay promised to match the winning bid to "help even more people in need" according to CNN.

The auction started off with a small bid of 99 cents and grew to a whopping price of $20,300, but with even more help from eBay, the doll was able to raise a total of $40,600 for Meals on Wheels.

The doll is not the only "sitting Bernie" merch helping a good cause.

The Bernie campaign store dropped a sweater featuring the inauguration meme, pledging 100% of the profits to Meals on Wheels. 

The sweater did indeed do some good charitable work, as it is now completely sold-out due to "overwhelming demand."
