Robert Kraft Matching Donations for Boston Marathon Explosion Victims

For every tragic piece of news that comes out of the Boston Marathon explosions, there are at least three inspiring ones. The New England Patriots are collecting donations to aid the victims and team owner Robert Kraft is personally matching the first $100,000.

There were three killed and 176 injured during two blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday that disrupted the 117th running of the event. The explosions were from two homemade bombs about three blocks apart in the heart of downtown Boston. Those who were injured have received nothing but incredible support and now Kraft and his franchise are making sure those victims are also aided financially, which is sometimes the most difficult part of these senseless tragedies.

The Patriots are Boston’s NFL team, although they play about 30 miles away from the city in Foxborough, Mass. The Boston Bruins postponed their game that was originally schedule on Monday night, the Boston Celtics cancelled theirs on Tuesday night and the Boston Red Sox honored the victims on Tuesday with a jersey in their dugout with the words “Boston Strong” and Boston’s area code, 617, as the number. Since the Patriots are the only one of those four major pro sports teams not in season, they are taking a different approach and Kraft should be recognized for this incredible act of kindness.
