Rosie O’Donnell donated a $1,000 to Reality Winner, the woman who has been charged with stealing and leaking “Top Secret” documents from the NSA.

On Thursday, the 55-year-old comedian shared on Twitter that she had made the donation on a crowd sourcing site set up for Winner, who was indicted on Monday after she allegedly stole classified documents from her employer about Russians trying to interfere into the 2016 election and gave them to The Intercept. (RELATED: Rosie O’Donnell Calls For Trump To Be Arrested)

She also confirmed that the large donation on the site that read from Rosie O’Donnell was in fact from her.

“@JohnEdwardsAJC it is accurate – i would love to talk to the mother and offer any help,” she added.

In one post she even referred to Winner as a “brave young patriot.”

According to the information on the page, contributions are to help Winner deal with the loss of employment and counseling she will need due to “this traumatic experience.”

“These funds will be able to assist with loss of wages,  counseling from this traumatic experience and to be able to recover from this as Reality & her family rebuilds their lives,” a statement on the site read. “Possible expenses for travel for the family and anything they might need to help them through these troubled times.”
