love, love, love!!!!

people do care!  people are good!!   i just love a good story the media is forced to share.  the good people of this world have raised over $537,000 for karen the bus monitor – and the donations are still streaming in!
this is karen:
karen makes $15,500. a year from her job as a bus monitor.  she’s 68 and rides the bus to help keep the kids safe everyday.  a few of the kids bullied karen and the video went viral on youtube.  some amazingly wonderful person named max had the thought that karen deserved a vacation from her torment, started a donation campaign on indiegogo and in just over 1 day has generated over $537,000!!!!

yay for karen!!!  yay for max!  – love to both of you. . . .

i wonder if karen will take max on her vacation?  

i am also wondering if max is single  . . .  

just some good news to start your weekend off with – enjoy!

  1. The video was so painful to watch I have not been able to watch it all!! What has happened to this generation? It is a lost and dark generation. Sad. But then I look at my eleven year old granddaughter and see hope – she has such a beautiful spirit. Let’s pray for these children and hope they will be better people and learn from their actions.

  2. Reblogged this on Writing Your Destiny and commented:
    I was deeply touched by the kindness of strangers in response to bullying of a senior citizen. You may have heard of this story already, but in case you haven’t, want to bring it to your attention.
    This is a compassionate use of crowdfunding as I had discussed in this blog earlier this week.

  3. Thanks for sharing this story — I’m reblogging it because it touched my heart so deeply to see the love of strangers at work in the world.
