The city of Boston and beyond has endured a trying week. We may be hurting, some more than others, but efforts to fundraise for victims are underway and proving to be strong community builders. Here is a current list of shirts, stores, and recovery activities benefitting those who have been affected most by last Monday's Marathon attack.
In alphabetical order (as of original posting Monday, April 22):
Allston Pudding has compiled 130 songs from 130 different musicians both regionally and nationwide to memorialize Monday's bombings. Donate at least $1 to download the tracks. 100% of the proceeds will go to The One Fund Boston.
Bodega x adidas: Further fundraising efforts from Bodega include donating 100% of proceeds from the Boston Super sneaker, a collaboration with Marathon sponsor adidas, to The One Fund Boston. Each pair is $125 and comes in two colors: blue and yellow, as well as red, navy and gray. [via Complex]
