On April 25th, 2013, The Write Stuff for Boston auction was held to benefit the victims and families of the Boston Marathon bombings that happened April 15, 2013, with all proceeds going to The Boston First Responders Fund and The One Fund. This tragic event took the lives of 4 people and injured over two hundred (these numbers include Officer Sean Collier of the M.I.T. Police and others injured during the massive manhunt that followed). As a born-and-raised Bostonian, I could not sit idly by while my home was rocked to its core. So with the help of many wonderful, generous people, I put the word out to fellow writers/authors, agents, editors and artists to collect donations in order to raise money for these worthy causes. This auction could not of happened without these incredible people, and I’m forever grateful to each and every one of them (and to each bidder, as well).
Together as 1, we are BOSTON STRONG
