Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino have announced an authorised charity has been established to help victims of the Boston Marathon / Patriot Day terror bombing April 15, 2013. The charity, The One Fund Boston, will serve as a clearinghouse for charitable activities related to the bombing, and is administered by attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who also coordinated the victims fund for 9/11 Sep 2001 Victim Compensation Fun, as well as funds assisting victims of the Aurora, Colorado, and Virginia Tech shootings, and the 2010 BP Gulf Coast oil spill.
The One Fund Boston
site: http://onefundboston.org
inquiries to: [email protected]
To send a check by mail:
One Fund Boston, Inc.
800 Boylston Street #990009
Boston, MA 02199
Be aware over 100 bogus charities have registered using terms like "Boston Marathon" - The One Fund Boston is the only approved charity for the victims of 4/14 and is the one most properly positioned to do so.

NOTE: Member JDiver is offering a challenge and will match dollar for dollar, to $1,000, every dollar contributed by FT members. See Post #18 for details.

I donated a dollar this afternoon, does that count?

I also bought a shirt designed for the fund - not the official Adidas shirt - and dropped off a bouquet of flowers and my old sneakers at the memorial.

I will be out of town for a few days (having just returned from an overseas trip), so I am just letting everyone know if a full $1000 total contributions is made by the time I return June 10, I will send that in as the match to FT contributions.

Go, Boston!
