Karen Klein, the upstate New York bus monitor who brought bullying to our attention earlier this summer when she was taunted by 7th grade boys, has launched an anti-bullying foundation.

The Karen Klein Anti-Bullying Foundation has been seeded with $100,000 from Klein, who received over $700,000 from a vacation fund started by Canadian Max Sidorov when the infamous video began to go viral. Klein will use the remaining money in order to retire.

One of her foundation's first projects is a music tour called the 'No Bully Tour 2012'.

"If we were able to raise $700,000 for one person," Klein writes, "I am sure we can raise thousands more for kids who are bullied every day."
