The Patriots announced Tuesday night the Kraft Family will match up to $100,000 in donations made toward relief efforts in the wake of the Marathon bombings.
The Patriots and Revolution Charitable Foundations will collect donations online, with funds earmarked to assist with victim recovery. Donations can be made at Patriots.com/donate or RevolutionSoccer.net/donate (please note “Boston Marathon” in field provided). The Kraft family will match the first $100,000 in donations.
“We are grieving for the victims of this senseless act,” said Robert Kraft. “It is not lost on us that this tragedy occurred on Patriots Day, at an event where our own staff and their families were participating, and where thousands of runners were raising money for charities with which we are associated either through our Foundation, our alumni or our friends. Our focus is on helping those in need and beginning the healing process. We hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give.”
“Yesterday was a sad day for the city of Boston, our state and our nation,” said Edward Kelly, president of the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts, and speaking on behalf of the participating unions. “Yesterday we cared for the victims and today we want to take care of them moving forward. To the families of the victims of yesterday’s tragedy, we can never bring your loved ones back or take away the injuries you sustained from this attack. This Fund is one way to hopefully provide comfort in your time of need.”

As Americans rush to donate to the victims of Monday's Boston Marathon bombing, watchdog groups are warning of potential online scammers already looking to profit from the tragedy.
Within hours of the bombing, dozens of website domain names referencing the bombing were registered, including bostonmarathondonations.com, bostonmarathonvictimfund.com and bostonmarathonattack.com.
It's too early to know what websites like these will be used for, yet nonprofit experts say that charity fraud is often perpetrated in the days and weeks after tragedy hits and are warning consumers to be on guard.
While some scammers solicit donations, others use fake charities to steal credit card numbers or to infect computers with malware, often with a link promising "exclusive" news or video of the incident.
One fraudster already tried to dupe the public by setting up a Twitter account minutes after the bombing that claimed to be associated with the Boston Marathon organization. The @_BostonMarathon account promised to donate $1 for every retweet. After users called it out as a fake, Twitter quickly shut the account down -- but not before it received more than 50,000 retweets.
Marathon attacks bring outpouring of charitable spirit In a display of sympathy and solidarity with the Marathon bombing victims, charitable donations are pouring in from across the country and beyond.
Within 24 hours of Monday’s tragedy, The One Fund, the central charity quickly set up for those affected by the bombings, had received $7.5 million. Much of that came from corporate and *major individual donors, but more than 8,500 *individuals also contributed to the website, *onefundboston.org, city officials said.
Internet fund-raising campaigns for those wounded in the bombings have also drawn waves of support, with one raising more than $200,000 in a single day.
A support fund set up by a high-tech nonprofit group just hours after the attack had raised $130,000, far more than expected. Boston hospitals and charities have been inundated with offers of assistance.
“It’s been a huge outpouring of people wanting to help,” said Ashley Studley, a spokeswoman for the American Red Cross of Eastern Massachusetts. “It’s incredible. I think people really feel inspired to do something.” http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/201...=Well_BG_Links
Bruins, Penguins to auction special game-worn jerseys
The Boston Bruins continue to step up and show just how “Boston Strong” they are with their actions, and they did it again in announcing special jersey both the B’s and the Pittsburgh Penguins will wear for Friday night’s game at TD Garden.
The Bruins will wear Black and Gold sweaters with “Boston Strong” Blue Ribbon patches on them and the Penguins will wear “617” patches on their sweaters in a battle between the two top ranked teams in the Eastern Conference.
The game-worn sweaters from both teams’ full rosters will then be auctioned off by their respective team foundations with all proceeds being donated to “The One Fund Boston” (OneFundBoston.org), whose purpose is to raise money to help those families most affected by the events at the Boston Marathon.
In addition to the jerseys being auctioned off, additional Bruins sweaters will be raffled off at the Bruins/Panthers game on Sunday, April 21 and the Bruins/Lightning game on Thursday, April 25 at the Bruins Foundation table located at Level 4 Loge 4 to support The One Fund Boston.
One lucky winner will be selected to receive the game worn jerseys of both Jaromir Jagr of the Boston Bruins and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Sweaters will also be available for auction at NHL Auctions (auctions.nhl.com) and will be available for bidding starting on Monday, April 22 through Friday, May 3. All proceeds for the NHL Auctions with the Bruins jerseys will go to The One Fund Boston.
‘Boston Strong’ Reebok t-shirts will also be available for purchase for $26, beginning Friday evening at the Bruins Pro-Shop and select retail locations inside the TD Garden. 100% of the proceeds of the “Boston Strong” t-shirts will be donated to The One Fund Boston.
On Friday, April 19th the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins will take to the ice at the TD Garden wearing jerseys adorned with a “Boston Strong” patch and “617” patch respectively. One lucky winner will receive the game worn jerseys of both Jaromir Jagr of the Boston Bruins and Evgeni Malkin of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Proceeds from this raffle will benefit One Fund Boston (TheOneFundBoston.org).
I am a Canadian, but have to say, they did amazing work and went above and beyond and made me feel like when I visit Boston for a game I will be as safe as possible. They risked their lives (and continue to do this everyday) - something I would have a hard time imagining doing like they do.
