Reading fan mail is how Klein spends most of her evenings, since the video of her being bullied went viral.
"Dear Karen, there are no words just tears. Anyhow, I made this for you and would feel honored if you wore this on your vacation," reads Klein.
The mail that includes gifts and thank you's from around the world.
Tuesday evening was her chance to say thanks to Max Sidorov, who showed up to Karen's home in Greece. He's the man who kick started the "Let's Give Karen a Vacation" fundraiser that generated more than a half a million dollars.
"Kinda like Christmas, you get all that nervous feeling when you're a kid. I'm glad that she finally got to meet him," said Michelle Hawkins, Klein's daughter.
According to family, the plan is for the two to get to know each other a little better for a couple days, and give the family the opportunity to extend their gratitude to Max for the vacation Klein has yet to take.
"I thought she was going to go into tears for a little bit there and she would love to thank him for everything he's done for her. It is wasn't for him, we don't know how far this would have gotten," said Amanda Romig, Klein's daughter.
