Connect Reaches Out to Boston Marathon Victims through One Fund Donation

Connect’s director of operations, Rachel, grew up just outside of Boston. So when our team learned about the tragedy that occurred at the Boston Marathon, we knew that we needed to take action. Through the One Fund Organization, we donated a percentage of all profits earned in the week leading up to the anniversary of the marathon bombings. We were successful in donating $780, all of which went directly to victims of the attack. In total, the One Fund has raised over $60 million, and has distributed 100% of those funds to Boston Marathon victims and survivors. This tragic episode touched us on a personal level, and we are glad that our contribution went toward transforming devastation into resilience and hope.
