The Attack on Boston

As some of you know, my home is in Boston, about a mile from where the bombs went off. The last two days have been incredibly stressful, especially because Boylston Street is a place where I am on a regular basis. Whether it’s to go to yoga, the bank, Trader Joe’s, shopping, to brunch at Forum, to pick up Haribo gummy bears at Sugary Heaven, to go spend a nice day working remotely at the library’s courtyard – I’ve walked these blocks hundreds of times and it’s sickening to see such a scene as it is but even more so in a place I know like the back of my hand.

Posts for the week have already been scheduled prior to this event so they’ll just continue on, but I wanted to spread the word about Rue La La’s Boston t-shirts (they are based in Boston).

Rue La La tough proud brave free boston to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings on April 13, 2013

Rue La La’s exclusive “Honoring Boston” t-shirt is sold in men’s and women’s sizes at $20 each. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Emergency Medical Fund at Massachusetts General Hospital, where many of the victims were treated and still remain.

Emerson students are also selling a “Boston Strong” t-shirt at Ink to the People for $20, going towards OneFund charity for victims’ families. 6one7 productions is on the same site, and will be able to donate $9,300 if 617 shirts are sold.

The Fashion Project has opened an exclusive boutique with proceeds going to OneFund as well.

Check out this list at BostInno of 100+ local restaurants donating a portion of this evening’s sales to the Greg Hill Foundation.

Update:

Allston Pudding put together a Marathon Relief Mixtape featuring 130 different songs and bands. Download for just $1 or more (your call) to benefit OneFund.

The Dropkick Murphys are also selling a “For Boston” T-shirt on their website, $24.99 – $26.99 with profits going directly to the victims and their families.
