Woman Donated $1 To Charity Every Time Someone Trolled Her On Twitter


If Susan Carland had a dollar for every time a troll shot her a hateful tweet, she would donate those dollars to UNICEF.

Carland donated over $1,000 in honor of haters bashing her for being a proud Muslim woman.

In a piece in The Sydney Morning Herald, the Australian scholar shared,

Carland used the outrage and epithets of her anonymous critics as fuel for her generous spirit.

Supporters joined in, and one even offered to match her donations.

Another took the burden off Carland for 50 tweets.

Carland told The Sydney Morning Herald her efforts didn't stop the hate from happening, but awareness was drawn to those in need.

Even if senseless evil can't be stopped, it's nice to know it can be repurposed into love.
