In the aftermath of the bombings, the good people of Boston did anything and everything they could to help victims, runners, families, and friends.
There are reports of restaurants offering free food to workers and helpers.
There are reports of clothing stores handing out water and supplies to any who need it.
There are reports of families offering their homes for anyone who may have been displaced.
And of course, there were the heroes, firemen, police, and first responders who ran towards the danger to help those in need.
Look for the helpers. Because they are always there.
Ann Curry has reignited the viral 26 Acts of Kindness that was started in the aftermath of the tragedy in Newtown.
Resurfacing again- any act of kindness that is done in the name of the victims of the Boston Marathon can be chronicled with the hashtag #26Acts2.
I wrote a post in December on 20 ways to give back . Any of these suggestions can be used to help show support for Boston as well.
