One crafty fan of the meme, Tobey King, put her skills to work, crafting a crocheted doll of Sanders complete with his famed mittens and decided to put it up for auction on eBay to raise money for a good cause.
Amount raised for charity.
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 sweater did indeed do some good charitable work, as it is now completely sold-out due to "overwhelming demand."
