An Indiegogo fundraiser in her name has pulled in more than $190,000 to send her on her way. (The amount continues to rise; we’ll update the numbers as it does.) The fundraiser was started by Reddit user Max Sidorov of Toronto, Canada. When Sidorov heard about Klein’s salary — $15,506, according to a district website — he decided she did not make enough money to have to put up with that type of harassment.
“As soon as I heard of Karen Huff Klein … I had to create a fundraiser here for this nice lady,” Sidorov writes in his profile. “Let’s give Karen a vacation of a lifetime, let’s show her the power of the internets and how kind and generous people can be.”
The reasoning behind the fundraiser was personal, in way. “I’ve had experience with bullying from school.” Sidorov told Mashable. “I know how bad it can feel.”
