how can anyone be blamed for wanted to contribute.

yes, the amount of money has gotten out of hand, but i'm sure the left-overs from the vacation is going to be given to a anti-bullying charity of her choice. it's not like she's gonna receive this money to buy herself a new car and house.

She doesn't earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Lets give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!

It amazes me that someone wanted to do something nice for this woman and he and the people who gave the money are getting ripped.

No one is ripping the guy and the donators. I'm just saying 500k for an old lady getting teased seems a bit ridiculous, no?
Millions of kids get that and worse done to them daily.... No one really cares. But an old lady gets it done to her (on video) and everyone wants to give her money?
I'm hoping this opens people's eyes to serious charities that support anti bullying, that would be a positive outcome.

No one really cares? With internet bullying, child suicides at an all time high. This subject is all over the place and I would say a lot more people care than ever before (yes, still not enough I know that). I get what you're saying but I just think that if she gets this money she'll probably give a chunk of it to charity. Good for her. To me this is a heart warming story in the midst of shootings, murders,molester and face eating stories we hear day in day out.

It is a very heart warming story I agree.
But devils advocate here: why should she give any money to charity? Isn't her cause a charity?
Will this story lose its luster if she keeps all of that money for herself? It was raised for her.

Why should she? No reason. I never said she should. I said she probably would. She should do whatever she wants with it imo. The money raised wasn't something she asked for and the people giving the money gave it to her specifically. If it's me I give the guy half and keep the rest. Screw it, because that's how I roll.

$500, 000, that's unbelievable! I got teased just as bad on the bus in high school every day and never got a penny for it, only scars.

My guess is she'll keep the money

Such an interesting and polarizing topic. Some seem shocked that anyone could raise a single quam against any sort of charity.

From my perspective, the problem with this campaign is that it makes use of the same mob mentality that the kid's felt protected them from treating someone like garbage. The kids families have received death threats, and surely the publicity and reward for the woman is grossly disproportionate not only to other ailments of the world, but also to other bullying that goes on. Sometimes it's like people can only get passionate about a topic if there's a herd of viewers on YouTube for them to follow (although I suppose this is a problem with media more generally).

I really, really do hope that she makes good use of that money by sharing it with some sort of anti-bullying program, foundation, etc.

These two quotes say exactly what I meant, but in a much better fashion. Deserve more than just a thumbs up. Well said
