Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s election team is selling T-shirts and stickers inspired by the now-famous memes of the mayor keeping a watchful eye over Chicago amid the stay-at-home order.

The design for the “stay home save lives” merchandise was created by local artist Mike Noren, Dave Mellet of Lightfoot for Chicago wrote in an email to supporters.

The money raised from the sales will go toward “local COVID relief charities” after costs for printing and shipping, Mellet said.

“We’re going to contribute to Greater Chicago Food Depository, and if demand is high we’ll add a few others,” Mellet said in an email.

T-shirts start at $30, while a three-pack of stickers will cost $8.

The artwork is inspired by the series of viral memes that depict Lightfoot standing guard at various locations around the city in an attempt to keep people home. Lightfoot has previously said she has “enjoyed” the memes.
