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’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.
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.
