We’ve all been touched by the tragedy in Boston. As both a Boston resident and friend to many of those participating in the marathon, I’ve certainly been looking for ways to show my support and wanted to share a few of the great ways to give back that I’ve found.
Rue La La will donate all net proceeds from the sale of this Honoring Boston tee to the Emergency Medicine Fund at Massachusetts General Hospital, which supports the patients and families affected by the Boston Marathon tragedy.
Adidas will donate 100% of all proceeds from the Boston tribute tee to The One Fund Boston.
GameDay Boston exclusively designed a shirt to honor the victims, their familes, and anyone who was touched by this event. We are Boston. We are strong. And we will prevail.
Proceeds from Game Day Boston’s special t-shirts will be donated to the Greg Hill Foundation, which has a direct connection to the families effected by this tragedy.
First, from now until April 30th, 100% of proceeds from sales of the Every Mile necklace will be donated to the One Fund which has been setup to help those most affected by this tragedy . Update: Due to many requests, theBoston Strong necklace has also been added to this fundraising effort.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have formed The One Fund Boston, to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. To learn more and donate directly, visit: http://onefundboston.org/
Massachusetts General Hospital is accepting donations for emergency medicine and trauma. You can donate online, call 617-726-2200 to contribute by phone, or send your donation via mail to: MGH Developmental Office, 165 Cambridge Street, Suite 600, Boston, MA 02114.
Boston Children’s Hospital continues to aid in the recovery following the explosions. You can support the hospital’s efforts with a donation to the Marathon Program, which supports the hospital’s areas of greatest need, or the Emergency and Trauma fund, which helps kids and families get the emergency treatment they need when tragedy strikes.

If you’re in Boston, there are also a number of local benefits planned for the next few weeks. More information is available here: http://www.boston.com/thingstodo/gotoit/2013/04/benefits_charit.html
Thoughts & prayers. Everyone stay safe and united.
