TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: An Update On The Woman Behind Bernie’s Mittens

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: An Update On The Woman Behind Bernie’s Mittens

You may remember when we did a Tell Me Something Good story on the 2nd grade teach from Vermont who hand-made the mittens Bernie Sanders had on in that meme that went viral. She said at the time that she only made a few pairs four years ago and gave one to Bernie. Since the meme took off she has been bombarded with requests for the mittens even though she doesn’t make them anymore. Well… there is now an update!

What started out as just her side-hustle is turning into something much bigger. She decided to give the people what they want and make some mittens. She’s partnering with a teddy bear company to make 18,000 pairs for anyone who wants to buy them.

What a crazy unexpected story. I love it.
