More than $700,000 was raised for a bullied bus monitor from upstate New York.

The video of her being taunted by kids went viral, and thousands of people donated to an online fundraiser set up to send Karen Klein on vacation.

Originally, the goal was to raise just $5,000, but donations poured in from all over the United States and about 80 other countries.

Klein will get 93% of the funds raised.

The rest of the money goes to the website and credit card processing fees.

The four middle school students who insulted her were suspended for a year and must go through a bullying prevention program.
