Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has battled AIDS, Ebola, SARS, MERS, and Zik over his 50-year career but Bleacher Creatures is interested in his most recent fight. A Kickstarter Campaign for the plush version of Dr. Fauci celebrates him as a defeater of COVID-19 misinformation.
The video above explains the Kickstarter campaign as a way for people to show their support for Dr. Fauci — and science. Those who sign up early will receive special discounts and bundle offers. Everyone who helps meet Bleacher Creature’s stretch goals will get a Dr. Fauci Face Mask and a “Stand Up for Science” metal lapel pin.
Fans who contribute to the Kickstarter will also get first access to the 10-inch collectible of America’s favorite doctor, with various quantities at various price points. Fans who donate the largest amount can get 12 plush collectibles of themselves — unrelated, does anyone want to give me $1,000?
If Bleacher Creatures meets its goal, fans should receive their very own Fauci just in time for the holidays. Find the campaign here.
