Robert Kraft donating up to $100,000 to Boston Marathon victims
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his family have announced they will donate up to $100,000 to help aid the victim's of Monday's Boston Marathon bombing.
New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, a lifelong Massachusetts resident, has announced that his family will be donating up to $100,000 to help the victims of Monday's Boston Marathon bombing.
The Patriots have set up a website where people can go to donate money. The Kraft family will match all donations up to $100,000.
"We are grieving for the victims of this senseless act," Kraft said. "It is not lost on us that this tragedy occurred on Patriots Day, at an event where our own staff and families were participating and where thousands of runners are raising money for charities with which we are associated either through our foundation, our alumni or our friends. Our focus is on helping those in need and beginning the healing process. We hope by matching donations, we will encourage more people to give."
Earlier on Tuesday, newly signed Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola also pledged money to the bomb victims. Amendola will be donating $100 for every pass he catches in 2013 and $200 for every pass he drops.
