An L.A. based company has begun selling underwear emblazoned with the names of New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, and California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.
The company said that for every purchase, they will donate one pair of underwear to health care workers in California and New York, according to Business Insider.
The clothing company Canava said that they created the limited edition underwear line to help healthcare workers “be able to rest, recharge and relax when they get home,” and as a thank you to Dr. Fauci, Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo.
“For all those ‘thirsty’ for Andrew Cuomo we’ve got the perfect way for you to show your appreciation. Put his name on your undies! Governor Andrew Cuomo has proven to be a bright spot in an otherwise insane time and we want to celebrate him while also giving back,” Canava said on their website. “We’re matching dollar for dollar any NYC Limited Edition product purchased with an equal product donation to healthcare workers in the NYC area.”

NEWSOM, FAUCI, CUOMO = our version of a dream team and we heard you loud and clear, after the launch of the NYC Limited Edition there was an outcry for MORE MORE MORE. Now there are Newsom & Fauci, limited edition briefs and bikinis. Run to your keyboard; there aren’t very many of these babies to be had. When you buy any of these limited edition products, we will be matching dollar for dollar your purchase with an equal product donation to healthcare workers in NYC (NYC, Cuomo & Fauci) or California (Newsom). We really want them to be able to rest, recharge, and relax as much as possible when they get home. . . . . . . #fauci #cuomo #newsom #sustainablefashion #newyorkstrong #healthcareheroes #anthonyfauci #gavinnewsom #fauciforpresident #faucigang #cuomobrothers #cuomosexual #cuomoforpresident #andrewcuomo #sustainable #sustainabledesign
The Cuomo and Fauci underwear will be donated to healthcare workers in NYC, while the Newsom panties will support healthcare workers in California.
“Consider yourselves heard. There are lots of you loving on Governor Gavin Newsom (we understand you), so we rushed to make sure there’s a way to show your love,” the company said.
The underwear line recently went viral on social media and elicited some strong responses from Twitter users. (Doughnuts, Shirts, Mugs And More Items With Dr. Fauci’s Face On It Are Selling Out Everywhere)
