Update: If You Want to Help Boston

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

For those of you who are not already directly involved in the relief efforts, below are some ways to help victims & authorities. Most importantly I would stress giving blood through the +American Red Cross or various hospitals in the area. Here is a press release from the Red Cross with a link to find out where you can donate. I've done it before and I recommend it to everyone - it doesn't take long, really isn't painful and it DOES make a difference.

- To offer housing in Boston: http://on.bchil.org/XEoe2C

- Boston charity, Tech Underwriting Greater Good is accepting donations that will go directly to helping those in need: http://on.bchil.org/XEodMa

- Red Cross Safe and Well website to connect w/ family & friends:http://on.bchil.org/XEogHL

- To get involved with the Salvation Army: http://on.bchil.org/XEogHO

- The last mile of the Boston Marathon was dedicated to victims of the Newtown shooting, make a donation to the Newtown Memorial Fund here: http://on.bchil.org/XEogY5

- How to help the authorities: 1-800-CALL-FBI, prompt #3 or 1-800-494-TIPS.
