Berlin Resident Selling Sesame Street Sign To Help PBS

Mike Baczewski obviously doesn't want to get rid of Big Bird.

Mike Baczewski, a former member of the Berlin Board of Education, is selling a Sesame Street sign to the highest bidder. The winning bid will be announced on Election Day, November 6 and the money donated to PBS.

"It is not so much selling the sign but rather countering the attacks on PBS," Baczewski said. "It struck me as being funny that Wall Street was largely responsible for bringing our national economy to its knees yet Mitt Romney's message 27 days from Election Day is picking a fight with Sesame Street.

"Look, I was lucky to get a job out of college and I could write my own check to PBS but I thought doing something creative like this would raise more money. I grew up watching PBS and I hope it's here for my children."

Baczewski said the sign was a display prop that a former employer was going to throw out.

"We'll have to see how much I can raise but I believe the last bid was $47," he said.

PBS asks for donations from the public all the time. This is the perfect way to support public broadcasting and save programming people enjoy.
