Racialicious wants to offer our thoughts and empathy for the victims of yesterday’s explosions at the Boston Marathon. As we wait for more information to come in, here’s a couple of resources for helping out, via The Huffington Post:
- The Red Cross has a “Safe and Well” page allowing people to check in online. The organization is not asking for blood donations at this time, but is encouraging people to sign up to make donations in the future.
- There are also Google Documents available for people who either need somewhere to stay or have a have a safe space to offer.
If there’s any local organizations organizing their own relief efforts, readers are encouraged to share those resources in the comments.
