Donations Pour In For Boston Marathon Bombing Victims

Posted:

BOSTON (WLNS) - One of the responses to national tragedy is that we as Americans tend to come together and rally for the cause. That's exactly what people have done in response to the Boston Marathon Bombings.

 

It didn't take long for donation platforms, to get up and running after the explosions. To avoid scams, Boston city officials set up 'The One Fund' on Monday. They say the purpose is "to raise money to help those famililes most affected by the tragic events that unfolded."

Among those donating, the main sponsor of the marathon, John Hancock, has given $1 million.

According to the Boston Globe, the charity raised $7.5 million after its first active 24 hours.

Adidas has also joined in to help donate. They have promised all the proceeds from their 'Boston Stands as One' t-shirt sales. The shirts come in different designs for men and women and cost $26.50.
