Boston Strong Community

Description

When we came up with the idea of selling Boston Strong t-shirts as a fundraiser the night of the bombings, we had no idea it would take off like it did. 68,000 t-shirts and $1,000,000 raised later, we still can't believe it.

It shows us Boston Strong is not about one person, one campaign, or even one city.

It is about the supportive community that emerged in response to tragedy. It is about neighbors looking out for neighbors. It is about easing the pain of someone you have never met, like you would your closest friend. It transcends city limits, sports rivalries, and national borders. It is a movement.

This is what Boston Strong looks like.
