The pastor had previously created a donation online page for Jones. The fundraising was set up after she was reportedly paid an amount of $3,600 for her appearance as a babysitter to 15-year-old daughter Tutar, Borat's daughter in the film. Tutar is played by 24-year-old Maria Bakalova. The fundraising page has since garnered $140,743 from over 5,700 donors.
