    By comparison ....


    [h=1]One Fund Boston Donations Top $20 Million[/h]
    In its first week, One Fund Boston has raised more than $20 million, and running entities have been among the leading donors.

    The fund was created by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to gather in one place donations designed to help families most affected by the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

    Running-related entities have been instrumental in the fund already topping $20 million. When the creation of the fund was announced the day after the bombings, John Hancock, the lead sponsor of the Boston Marathon, was among the first donors, with a $1 million contribution. Adidas, another long-time sponsor of the marathon, has released a "Boston Stands As One" shirt that includes the marathon's logo; all proceeds from the shirt sales go to the fund.

    LOL, basically, you cant care about everything...there's too much bad shit out there. So we personalize shit that we consider close to us....Like Boston...the news pumps it all day, so most people care. meanwhile 20 peeps get whacked every day in chicago, but people dont give a fuck. Odd
