A group of men with guns that have seized a federal building, dubbed the 'Oregon Militia' by U.S. Media, asked recently for supporters to send them snacks to keep them going.

Users of the 'Front Page Of The Internet', Reddit, are planning to send them a number of other, more sparkly, items instead.

The community members have been coming forward with suggestions on what else they could send the group.

User 'AmeliaPondPandorica' put together the ultimate sleepover kit for the men, including sparkly nail polish, a 'stress relief' aromatherapy kit, Taylor Swift's 'Wonderstruck' perfume and pedicure socks.

One user suggested 'sugar free gummy bears' while another offered up his Amazon Prime account to make it happen.

A cheekier user suggested sending them a "bag of d*cks" - a bag of phallic-shaped gummy bears through a website that allows users to do that.

By far the most popular suggestion is to send the men glitter through the website

Yesterday a photo was tweeted by Oregon Public Broadcasting reporter Amanda Peacher which shows the group's supplies are running relatively low which prompted the call to supporters for help.

Posting on Facebook, Blaine Cooper asked supporters to please send on "snacks or anything that may be useful to this stand".

"We do not stand for fame or fortune. We do this for our children and for their freedom. We do this for your children and their freedom".
