Bullied Bus Monitor Raises $550,000
The online fundraising drive to send the bullied 68-year-old middle school bus monitor off for a little rest and relaxation has now far surpassed its $5,000 target, shooting past half a million dollars on Friday.
On Tuesday, a video of middle school boys taunting Klein while on a school bus in Greece, New York went viral, raising sympathy for Klein. “I am so sorry for the way I treated you,” one of the boys, identified as Josh, wrote in a letter to the bus monitor.
“When I saw the video I was disgusted and could not believe I did that.”
