Here’s a heart-warming story.
A sixty-eight-year-old New York bus monitor, who was relentlessly bullied by four middle school students has received more than 700-thousand dollars, thanks to the efforts of a Toronto man.
Sixty-eight-year-old Karen Klein received the check at a ceremony this morning totaling $703,833 dollars.
The amount far exceeded the expectations of 25-year old Max Sidorov who started the drive with the goal of raising just 5-thousand dollars to send Klein on vacation.
Donor sympathies were stirred by a cellphone video of the June taunting, uploaded to YouTube by a student on the bus.
The video shows Klein trying to ignore a stream of profanity, insults and threats from the seventh-grade boys, who have been suspended.
The Greece, New York, grandmother has since retired.
