Ways to Help Bernie When You're Too Broke to Donate

No Money, No Problem - Help Bernie Sanders Anyway

You are feeling passionate about Bernie Sanders for president but can't afford to donate often. Don't feel bad about that, just apply your efforts in other ways to help him win votes.

You have bills to pay, commitments to keep food on the table and a roof over your head. Don't despair. Even though you can't send your hero, Bernie Sanders, a $50 donation this month, there are still ways to help.

Create Public Art Promoting Bernie

Allison's husband drew this great graphic on the sidewalk. Chalk is fairly cheap and we can use our driveway or sidewalk to spread the message about Bernie.

Sell Some Stuff to Help Bernie

Here's advice from Jason Jensen to the Bernie Believer's group on Facebook:

"My wife said if I get rid of the Junk in the Garage, I can give the Money to Bernie Sanders!

So, last week I posted things on Craigslist, like baby gear, a table and chairs that was taking up space we needed. There were some good used toys my son outgrew, like a big stack of wooden chunky puzzles, etc.

It's already GONE! I was going to advertise that the money is going to Bernie, but decided not as it might limit my buyers and it made my wife nervous.

Anyhow, people got stuff they need (reduce, reuse, recycle), my wife got the space she wanted in our garage and I got $475 to kick to Bernie and $25 more to Act Blue.

Have a look around and see if there's something you need to clear out anyhow! Do it for Bernie!"

Write on Your Money

Put Bernie slogans on your cash before spending it as usual.

Make Some Bernie Bucks to Spread the Message

Whatever cash you have, add a Bernie campaign slogan to it. When you pay your bills or buy something, the message starts traveling from hand to hand. Eventually many people will see it.

Put Slogans in Your Car Windows

Maybe you have some car window chalks/paints on hand from a sports rally or a wedding. Write a Bernie slogan in your car window to promote him wherever you go.

VOTE

The ultimate way to help your candidate is to go out and vote. Make sure ahead of time that you are registered and know where your polling place is. Schedule time off from work, if you need to, and arrange transportation.
