April 13, 2013, 2 pressure cooker bombs went off near the finish line at the annual Boston Marathon. Upon hearing that 3 people were killed along with 264 others injured, majority loosing limbs, atheists from around the world came together to raise $20, 718 in 4 weeks to aid victims of the Boston Marathon Bombings.  Atheists Giving Aid sent the money to Boston One Fund which was founded for the victims of the bombing.  The Boston One Fund gave the money to the victims to help with everyday life, medical bills, and prosthetics. We waited for months for people to apply for the aid, but no one ever did.  We don’t know why no one applied, but we think it is because we are an atheist organization and we ask that we be able to blog about what we’ve done so people can see their money at work. Thank you so much to everyone who donated.  Please keep following us and donating to our organization so we can help others in a more direct manner.
