      Greece school bus monitor uses funds raised to start anti-bullying foundation

      The former upstate New York school bus monitor whose videotaped bullying by students spurred more than $700,000 in donations to her is using some of the funds to start her own anti-bullying foundation.

      The Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation has been established as part of the GiveBack Foundation, which allows individuals to set up foundations online.

      According to Klein's page on GiveBack's website, she's using $100,000 of her donated funds to start her foundation to support anti-bullying initiatives around the world.

      More than 32,000 people donated money online on Klein's behalf after a video showing her being bullied on a suburban Rochester school district bus by middle school students went viral. The 68-year-old said last month that she was retiring.

      The four students who taunted Klein were suspended for a year.
