GE35: 5 Ways to Help with Boston’s Marathon Bombing Victims

On Patriot’s Day 2013 multiple bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Three people were murdered and over 170 other innocent victims were injured in this cowardly terrorist act. Jonathan J. Reinhart lives less than 24 miles from the bombing site and his wife works less than a 10 minute walk to that spot.

This episode tells how you can help the victims of this dastardly tragedy and how you can help those in need in your own communities.

 

5 Ways to Help with Boston’s Marathon Bombing Victims

  1. Give Blood.
  2. Donate to an appropriate charity. One Fund Boston is a great choice.
  3. Thank 1st Responders for all they do.
  4. Stay reliably informed before passing information on to others. Boston Police’s Twitter account and the FBI Boston’s Twitter account are great resources.
  5. Live your life normally.
