ROCHESTER, N.Y. — An online fundraising effort raised more than $290,000 for a bus monitor who was verbally abused by students, CBS/The Associated Press reports.
A kid on board the bus captured the profane taunting of bus monitor Karen Klein on Monday. The video was later posted to YouTube, and it has since gone viral, with more than 2 million hits by Thursday.
A fundraising effort was set up for Klein on the international crowd funding site Indiegogo.com with the goal of raising $5,000 in 30 days to send Klein on a vacation. More than 12,000 people have submitted donations. Klein reportedly told NBC's "Today" show on Thursday that was "amazed" by the support she's received.
