On Thursday, The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum announced their release of bobbleheads featuring 35 essential workers that have been on the frontlines during the pandemic. $5 of the proceeds of every bobblehead will go to the Protect the Heroes Campaign, which provides personal protective equipment (PPE) to frontline workers.
Since the start of the pandemic, The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has raised over $215,000 for the Protect the Heroes Campaign through their sales of Dr. Fauci, Dr. Birx and eight U.S. governor bobbleheads with the Dr. Fauci bobblehead becoming their bestselling bobblehead of all time.
“The series, which is our biggest undertaking, includes 35 different frontline professions and highlights the often unheralded and underappreciated workers that the nation has come to appreciate more than ever during the coronavirus pandemic,” said National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO, Phil Sklar. “Bobbleheads are typically reserved for sports stars and celebrities, but we think these everyday heroes are deserving of one of the highest honors…a bobblehead!”
The bobbleheads are available for preorder and are available in both male and female versions with options for lighter and darker skin tones. The bobbleheads come in a wide variety of professions such as doctors, grocery store clerks, delivery drivers, IT specialists, restaurant workers, parents and teachers.
“Essential workers that the nation once took for granted have been heroes during this coronavirus pandemic,” said Sklar in a press release on Thursday. “Bobbleheads are the perfect way to honor these heroes forever, and I personally look forward to delivering some to teachers, nurses, restaurant workers and many others who have been so critical during these unprecedented times.”
