The Boston Marathon bombing was heartbreaking. I have visited Beantown a number of times, and am a fan of the city. I am also a native New Yorker, and listening to the news brought me back to September 11, 2001.
I used to live in Battery Park City, and could see the World Trade Center from my window. With the planes crashing into the World Trade Center and the Boston Marathon bombing, I not only felt sad, I felt helpless and was sucked in by the news. I found it hard to work.
I was recently contacted by the people of The Fish and Bone, a pet boutique located one block away from the site of the bombings in Boston. They are selling T-shirts for dogs, men, women, and kids, and ALL the profits go to The One Fund Boston, set up by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred on April 15.
You can order the t-shirts here.
