On her website there is a link to her Barack Obama Mama Store where she sells items such as tee-shirts, hoodies and other apparel, mugs, note cards, buttons, bumper stickers, etc. Lakshmi sends 100% of the proceeds of all sales to Barack Obama’s campaign. She is the proud and loving single mother of her bi-racial son Derek, and she has a strong heartfelt connection with Barack and his mother.
