Auto Doll Stuffer for Lil Bernies!

$3,025 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 79 people in 37 months

Since September, Emily Engel has spent hours creating Lil Bernies, handcrafted plush dolls of Bernie Sanders.   They have been a hit, garnering media attention and countless interviews.  The project has gone viral, and she has gained national attention.   Senator Sanders even owns one.

The dolls are adorable, and Emily has sent 150 out to 42 states!  Moreover, she has raised $3,000 for the Sanders campaign.   Since she has reached the FEC donation cap, she now asks that buyers provide proof of a $25 donation to the Sanders campaign, with each Lil Bernie purchase.

However, she cannot keep up with demand.  Each doll takes 2 to 3 hours to produce, as it is entirely handmade.  
A waitlist for the Lil Bernies has over 800 people, and she can only make the dolls so quickly.

With this automated doll stuffer, Emily will be able to fulfill her demand, and continue to make adorable, charming dolls to benefit the Sanders campaign, and for other important causes.

Think of how much money Emily could raise with this doll stuffer.  Imagine all the people on the waitlist and more donating $25 apiece to the Sanders campaign.  It's quite a worthwhile investment.

Note:  If the goal is not achieved, your money will still go to buying supplies indispensible to the creation of more Lil Bernies.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed and/or shared this GoFundMe.

Because of you, Emily will now be able to purchase the automated stuffing machine, so even more people will have Lil Bernies.
