All of our hearts go out to those who have been affected by this “act of terror” on those running in the Boson Marathon on Patriots Day. To honor those who have been affected please help me and another San Diego State Journalism Media Studies student get the following hashtag trending on twitter: #SDSUlovesBoston. This is a fundraising effort led by a current SDSU Graduate Student. If you would like to donate to help out the victims of todays attack please click on the link. Statement from the campaign:
“We are fundraising for a total of $5000 (min). Half of the collections (up to $2500) will be donated to the Red Cross of Boston to help with their efforts. Anything beyond that will be donated to the individual in this picture (we are working on identifying him) to help defray costs of care. If anyone has any information regarding the man in the picture, please email firstname.lastname@example.org”
