"I really wasn't going to talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else's conversation on Facebook", Briskman told Megyn Kelly in an interview on NBC.
The campaign claims to have connected with Briskman and says she will receive all funds.
On Oct. 31, her bosses called the 50-year-old mother of two into a meeting and fired her, saying she had violated the company's social media policy by using an obscene photo on her Twitter and Facebook pages.
The campaign description reads: "Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all". She was sacked shortly thereafter, reportedly because she posted the photo on her social media accounts, which qualified as "obscene" content and supposedly violated her company's employee conduct guidelines.
After the photo gained internet fame, Briskman chose to alert her employer, Akima LLC, a government contractor, that she is the woman in the photograph.

The JPSS program is a partnership between NOAA and NASA that will oversee all the satellites in the series. The Delta II rocket's window to launch JPSS-1 into the correct orbit was just over a minute long.
Since Briskman is now without a job, her friends started a "Thank You Juli Briskman" GoFundMe, which will benefit Briskman directly.
Juli Briskman grabbed global headlines after a White House photographer snapped her cycling past President Trump's convoy of cars as it departed the Trump National Golf Club in Virginia to bestow him with a one-finger salute. "He pulled ads for open enrollment in ObamaCare". "Basically, you can not have "lewd" or 'obscene" things in your social media.
"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause.
Despite losing her job, Ms Briskman said she did not regret the incident, adding "I'd do it again", and has since made the photo her profile and background picture on social media.
