This is pretty incredible:
Then some awesome guy started a fund to give her a "vacation of a lifetime", looking to raise $5,000 for her.
It's been less than 24 hrs and the fund has raised over $90,000.
I’m not sure if this has already been brought to everyone’s attention or not, but here is the deal:
Above is a video of a 68-year-old bus monitor named Karen Klein being verbally harassed by a group of middle schoolers on their way home from Athena Middle School in Greece, New York. Throughout the ten minute video, you can hear the kids verbally berate the woman, calling her a bitch, fatass, poor, ugly, and various other words of the like. At one point in the video, you can hear one of the kids yell, “You’re so fuckin poor you fat ass,” in which Karen responds, “I try to live by some of these words, I try and it’s really hard,” referring to the words on her purse. Now, I don’t know about you, but that broke my fucking heart. There’s even a point in the video where one of the kids touches Karen’s arm in an attempt to make fun of her. I’m not sure why these kids would want to bully a senior citizen to tears, but I feel we should do something, or at least try.
She doesn't earn nearly enough ($15,506) to deal with some of the trash she is surrounded by. Lets give her something she will never forget, a vacation of a lifetime!

Let's hear it for the good people out there and put a stop to all the bullying.
(We need that teacher in Texas to teach these kids a lesson).
