our heart, like's, is downtown
Whether you are Boston local or flung far afield and have a special connection to Boston or Watertown you probably feel motivated to do something after the Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt that followed.  If you’d like to show your support for our victims and appreciation for our first responders and law enforcement I’d suggest two things you can do to honor them from anywhere: give blood to your local blood bank or take a CPR/First Aid course. If you’d prefer to donate cash instead two great places to start are One Fund Boston  and the Watertown Police Department.
