While many are furious that Casey Anthony will be released from prison in a matter of days, others are sending her cash.

The Daily Mail reports that funds in her Orange County, Fla., jail account reached $301.18 yesterday -- and money is still rolling in.

Strangers from Iowa, Pennsylvania and Canada have sent her small donations and she's been spending the cash on candy:

Records reveal that sweet-toothed Anthony has been buying lots of candy as she gets ready for her release in nine days' time on Sunday 17 July. In the last two weeks, Anthony has bought Almond Joy bars as well as packets of Skittles, KitKats and Reese's peanut butter cups. Other items purchased include nachos with cheese and a jalapeno dip, flour tortillas and peanut butter.

It might be hard to believe, but alongside the death threats, Anthony has also received an outpouring of support.

Orlando resident Tim Allen, 24, even carried a sign outside the Orange County courthouse on Thursday as Anthony received her sentence for lying to investigators, asking her to marry him.
