Good News Fridays: Buy Boston a Round

Geek Alabama Good News Fridays

What a week everyone!  On Monday, two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.  Three people were killed and many more people were injured.  Some people even lost their limbs.  Many first responders saved lives and helped other people during and after the attack.

Over the week, multiple law enforcement officials went all across the Boston Metro to find the people responsible.  On Thursday evening, two suspects were identified and the entire Boston Metro went on lock-down.  One of the suspects was found but died in the hospital Thursday night.  Throughout Friday, a massive search to find suspect number 2 was ongoing.  And on Friday evening, the 2nd suspect was found hiding in a boat and arrested alive!

Now a fundraiser has been created by @yougotfossed (Sherri Ross Walters) to reward all of the first responders and police with a simple reward, a drink!

This fundraiser is called Buy Boston a Round!  The goal is to raise $5,000 and the money will be used to buy the police, fire, medical personnel, first responders, and other heroes in the Greater Boston area a drink!  All money raised will be sent to a bar in Boston and will be used to serve the city a round.  The bar in Boston is still to be determined.  This fundraiser is to show Boston and our nation’s finest that we support them.  Right now, all first responders deserves all the praise they can get!

Let’s also not forget the victims who lost their lives while on duty or will have to live with life-altering changes.  It’s going to take a long time for the Boston area to recover from this terrorism event.  But rest assured, Boston will be stronger than ever!  I can’t wait for the 2014 edition of the Boston Marathon!
