Bullied School Bus Monitor, Karen Klein Recieves Outpouring Of Compassion [Video Follow-Up]

Karen Klein

Karen Klein, the school bus monitor who was bullied by a group of teens, has been the recipient of a huge outpouring of compassion.

Not only has she received more than $400,000 in donations, she also talked to Anderson Cooper about what punishment might be good for the kids that bullied her.

The video went viral after one of the boys posted it on Facebook. It got the attention of people, who pledged more than $400,000 and growing, so Karen Klein can go on a vacation.

The outpouring of support was started by a 25-year-old Canadian nutritionist who saw the video and launched a campaign on the fundraising website Indiegogo.

He wrote: “She doesn’t earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Let’s give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!”

His goal of $5,000 was broken within hours. Strangers from around the world shared the story on social networks and pledged amounts of $5 to hundreds.

Klein is a grandmother who drove a school bus for 20 years and has been a monitor for three. She said she’s “kind of numb” from the generosity.

School officials and police are looking into the video. The father of one of the boys has already apologized.
