Subject: Thank you

Dear Christy Brennan/RIRR,

One Fund Boston is successful because of you. Over 195,000 people have donated, and the generosity continues. Donations have been received from all 50 states and over 50 countries around the world, from individuals and businesses, from lemonade stands and neighborhood fundraisers.

We are profoundly touched by the various ways in which people have conveyed their solidarity and support. Children asked for donations in lieu of birthday presents; messages of hope and well wishes were written on envelopes, checks, and in letters; and thousands of paper cranes arrived from Japan in hopes that they will bring peace and recovery to victims, survivors and their loved ones. These acts of kindness are helping people heal.

We have been able to provide some relief and peace of mind to hundreds of affected individuals and families thanks to your generosity. We are truly grateful for your gift. One Fund Boston, Inc. (the “One Fund”) acknowledges receipt of your contribution of $450.00 to be used for the charitable purposes of the One Fund. One Fund is a 501 (c)(3) organization and your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services were provided in exchange for this contribution.

The recovery has just started for many and it will be a long road. The resilience of the people affected by the events on April 15, 2013 and in the days that followed has inspired our city and nation, and we ask that you continue to support and stand united with them. Thank you for your continued support of the One Fund.
