Bullied Bus Monitor Uses Donation Money To Start Anti-Bullying Foundation

After YouTube videos exposed a group of middle schoolers ruthlessly taunting 68-year-old Karen Klein, $700,000 in donations flooded in. Now, she’s using part of her money to fight bullying.

The Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation — seeded with $100,000 of Klein’s donation money — begins its first campaign Oct. 5 in South Carolina with the multi-state “No Bully Tour.” Klein, the retired bullied school monitor who spurred the internet into action, will be joined by fellow anti-bully advocate Miss Teen USA Logan West.
