NEW YORK - It's the video seen around the world. A New York school bus monitor being taunted by kids while it's all being recorded. The man who started a campaign to raise money for the woman to go on a fabulous vacation, is blown away by the world's support.
The bullied Karen Klein finally got to meet the man behind her vacation fundraiser, Max Sidorov.
Since the bullying video went viral, Klein spends much of her evenings reading fan mail. Some of the mail contains gifts and "thank yous" from around the world.
One letter began, "Dear Karen, there are no words just tears."
Klein got her chance Tuesday night to meet and thank Sidorov at her home.
Sidorov kick started the "Let's give Karen a vacation" campaign. His goal was to raise $5,000 for a vacation for Klein. In the end, it generated more than $650,000.
"It's kinda like Christmas. You get all that nervous feeling when you're a kid. I'm glad that she finally got to meet him," one family member said.
Klein plans to take a vacation, but donate a large portion of the raised funds to charity.
