One Month Since the Bombing: Fundraiser Update

Thieftaker120A month ago today, bombs set off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed three people and wounded hundreds.  One month.  It doesn’t seem like that long ago, and yet the bombing has virtually disappeared from the headlines.  The city is healing; I heard a report on NPR this morning about how some semblance of normality has returned to that part of Boston.  But for those whose lives were shattered that day, the long, slow, at times painful recovery continues.  And you can help them.

The Thieftaker Fundraiser/Giveaway is still up and running, collecting donations for the One Fund for Boston, which will donate every penny to helping the injured, and the families of those who died.  We are only about $200 short of the first giveaway: a signed bound manuscript of THIEFTAKER, a collector’s item.  But we remain several thousand dollars short of the fundraiser’s goal of $5000.00.  If you have already given, thank you.  If you have not yet done so, please consider giving a gift today.  You don’t have to give a lot; every dollar truly does help.  Here is the URL:

Many thanks.
