A great band just became even greater as Boston punk unit The Dropkick Murphys announced via their official Twitter that they’ve so far raised $65,000 for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings selling a freshly designed t-shirt for the cause on their website. The front is the Boston skyline below “For Boston” and the back reads “Thank you, to all who purchased this shirt. All proceeds go to the victims and families of the Boston Marathon bombings. Love, Dropkick Murphys.”
Pre-orders are accepted and they ship not only within the US, but also to Europe and Australia. All proceeds are going to the families – the band isn’t keeping one cent. Order yours here.
UPDATE: The band announced via their official page on Facebook that they/their fans in fact have raised more than $100,000 within the first 24 hours. It was also quite moving reading that the Richard Family from Dorchester actually have ties to the band.
