Frequently Asked Questions
People all over the world have been asking us why we don't ship to their country. Clearly we underestimated Bernie's global appeal! We've set up shipping for the following countries, as per requests received (you have to add them one-by-one on Kickstarter and there are an awful lot of countries!)

We work with a variety of suppliers both domestic and foreign and we will choose the one who is most qualified for the job.
Right now, all we have is the original sculpture, which was made in Seatlle by Mike Leavitt. No mass production has gotten underway and we haven't selected the factory who will produce the final product yet.
That said, we can't promise it will be made in the USA, as much as we'd love to. The unfortunate reality is that there are not many factories in the USA that do this kind of work. If you know of one, please contact us with their information!Last updated:

Here's the deal... Kickstarter doesn't allow projects to raise money for political campaigns or charities. We would if we could, but it's just not allowed and we totally understand why Kickstarter has this policy. However, what we can do is use the funds from Kickstarter to create our own site after the campaign and use that site to raise money for Bernie's campaign. When that happens, we will begin sending $1 per figure sold to Bernie's campaign.
This was our plan all along but we realize from some of the comments we've seen that many people had the impression that the policy applied to the actual Kickstarter campaign and we don't want any of you to feel misled.
If you choose to withdraw your funding from our campaign, we will understand but if not we're confident that you will see through our updates and our actions after March 30 that we intend to keep good on our pledge to use this product as a way to support the Bernie campaign. We just have to do it in a way that respects Kickstarter's rules.
Once we go live with our own site, we will make our contributions public so everyone can see the $1 per figure model in action, transparently.
Finally, we have to acknowledge that there are limits to how much money people can donate to a political campaign so if we keep on selling figures at the current rate we'll have to be creative as to how we make the donations - possibly moving the funds to a Bernie-related charity after a certain threshold. It will be a learning process for us and we'll be working with a lawyer to make sure we stay well within the bounds of the law. Again, we'll do this all publicly and transparently.
Again, thanks for your support. This campaign has already succeeded beyond our wildest dreams and we have you to thank for it. Please know we're listening to you guys and doing our best to keep up with your comments, questions and concerns. Our top priority remains as it was; to develop a fun, accessible way for small businesses and regular people to get involved in campaign finance.Last updated:
