To the Editor;
Everyone has probably seen the Bernie Sander’s photo of him rugged up with the mittens and then the numerous memes of it.
Although it was mostly a funny picture and a few laughs, a handmade crocheted doll of it has now raised over $40,000 in US funds for meals on wheels. This is a charity that the senator supports.
It is an interesting story that combines amusement, generosity and the reality that there are a lot of people who are cold and hungry and that any help will be appreciated. Probably the greatest benefit is the publicity meals on wheels will get and it should encourage all that can, that we should help those less well off, especially in these COVID times.
