I am stuck in the house because of all this ice. I was laying in bed this morning enjoying being able to sleep in and enjoying my app addiction, BuzzFeed. I found the following article: “That Dead Girl”. I know it is long but take a few minutes to read it, it really had an impact on me. I have witnessed or heard of bullying instances in my school and hate that this is such a prevalent problem in out society today.

I started looking for an anti-bullying charity to donate to. In my searches I found the Karen Klein foundation. She was a school bus monitor who was bullies by the students on her bus. They took videos of the bullying and the videos went viral : Karen Klein Viral Video.

After the video went viral people started donating money to Karen so that she could take a vacation. She ended up getting more that enough money to go on vacation, retire, and take care of her family. She still had money left over so she decided to start an anti-bullying foundation. Read the full story here: Karen Klein Mission.

I think it is amazing that people came together to support this sweet lady and take a stand against bullying. The Karen Klein foundation has books for sale that promote an anti-bullying mindset. The money from these books goes to the foundation.

Here is my donation, I encourage you all to do the same. Find a foundation that inspires you and give a little something. If everyone comes together to stand up for what is right then the world can be a better place.
