Max Sidorov, Man Behind Karen Klein Indiegogo Donation Fund, Now Getting His Own Donations

Posted: Updated:

Max Sidorov, the man who set up the Indiegogo donation campaign for bullied Greece, N.Y. bus monitor Karen Klein, is getting a reward of his own, the New York Daily News reports.

Thanks to another Indiegogo user named Case Prince, Sidorov now has his own donation campaign -- so far having raised more than $4,000.

"Max Started the campaign that turned into a landslide of support for Karen Huff Klein and against bullying," Prince wrote in the campaign's info section. "I feel Max deserves a small reward himself."

But reactions to the new donation campaign have not been as unanimously positive as they were for Klein's.

“The point of a good deed is to do it without expecting recognition,” one user wrote, according to the Daily News. “Don’t donate to this guy. He’s obsessed with himself now, claiming the whole world knows who he is.”

In addition to the donations to Klein's fund, which now amount to more than $500,000, the bus monitor also received apologies from two of the middle school boys who bullied her in the now infamous video.
