$700,000 Happy Ending For Bullied Bus Monitor

A Canadian man who thought he’d be able to raise $5,000 to send on vacation a 68 year old woman who had been bullied by students while doing her job as a bus monitor has actually raised over $700,000. A huge check was given to her in a ceremony in Toronto.

She retired.

I love happy endings.

  1. This has been all over the news here for months. It’s pretty cool. 🙂

  2. This story tells us the depth of human compassion first from the person who set out to raise the $5000 and the many who responded.

    I love stories like this – the triumph of kindness over hatred. Good for her!

    I remember the story, but had not heard the outcome. YAY for her. I love when good things happen for good people. And the ceremony must have been emotional.

      I too had heard the initial story and that some money was being raised so she could go on a vacation but I hadn’t seen anything until the article I shared showing that the amount raised had soared.

  5. The fact that she is using some of it to bring attention to ‘bullying’ and is going to travel to speak on it …is even better when added to the story…Diane
