Today, I will be taking a break from Bruins news, but I will not be taking a break from helping out those affected by the senseless bombings on Marathon Monday.
For many of you who do not know me, I have been born and raised in Stoneham, MA, my entire life. Of those 176 injured during the bombings, six Stoneham residents and friends were severely injured during the attacks. I am asking you to please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.
A few of my best friends have set up a Boston Strong/Stoneham Strong benefit fund selling wristbands to help out the individual’s families with medical and rehab costs.
The press release below will give you all you the information need to know. Please help donate for a great cause (the link can be found below):
We hope this email finds you well. The effects of Boston Marathon Bombings on April 15, 2013 were felt around world, but ever so painfully for the small Boston suburb of Stoneham, Massachusetts. Six people from Stoneham were severely injured in the Boston Marathon bombings. Many of them face arduous recovery and rehabilitation periods after burns, shrapnel injuries, and amputations. As classmates and friends, we are determined to help them through this recovery in any way that we can.
To that end we will be selling wristbands in Boston Marathon colors with the phrases “Boston Strong” and “Stoneham Strong” printed on them. All proceeds will go to the Stoneham victims to defray their medical and rehabilitation expenses after this horrible and senseless act of violence.
We would like to ask for your support in this project not only by ordering a wristband through http://
