Just a week ago, Karen Klein was the subject of the merciless taunts of a bunch if kids. Now, the 68-year-old is sitting on a fortune of $646,062 (and counting) after a ovewhelming public outpouring of support.
The fundraising fund, which originally had the modest goal of raising $5,000 to send her on a vacation of a lifetime, has surpassed everyone’s expectations.
So what is the Greece Central School District employee going to do with these newfound riches?
“What would anybody do with that much money?” she said during an interview on the “Today” show this morning.
She explained that she planned on investing some, donating some to charity and helping out her family.
“I keep thinking, ‘What have I done?’” she said. “It’s like I almost don’t feel like I deserve it.”
It would be interesting to find out if any of the bullies families contributed to the fund…..
