Honoring the human life at the heart of the story
Reddit is not always known as a place of tact or class, but today the community devoted to the Serial podcast is paying its respects to Hae Min Lee with a day of silence to honor the anniversary of her death.
The subreddit, which has over 40,000 subscribers, is normally a place of discussion, debate, and obsessive theorizing by fans of the podcast. But all discussion is currently on pause. Instead, the subreddit features only the following message, urging readers to honor Lee’s memory, and suggesting donations to the Woodlawn High School Scholarship Fund:
The scholarship fund, which was founded by listeners of the podcast, will be collected by Charitysmith, a non-profit foundation, and given to the high school to distribute to graduating students at their discretion.
