(Newser) – Karen Klein received more than $700,000 in donations after a video of her being bullied by students on a bus went viral—and she's taken $100,000 of that money to start the Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation. The 68-year-old former bus monitor's organization aims to end bullying, and will start off with the No Bully Tour 2012, a music tour and awareness campaign. The foundation will also support other organizations with similar missions, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports.
