Miami Heat All-Star LeBron James is raising money for the families affected by the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The "kicks" he wore in Miami's game against the Washington Wizards the day after the incident are up for auction. It should generate upwards of $5,000.
Beware of the scams out there, but if you want to buy something that will really help the Boston victims, 100% of your purchase money will go to The One Fund if you buy from:
--Adidas: They're the offical Marathon sponsor. They have a "Boston Stands Alone" t-shirt that's on sale.
--Dropkick Murphy's is a Boston punk band. Their website is selling a "For Boston" t-shirt. They've already raised $150,000 for pre-orders. It also benefits the One Fund.
Since Neil Diamond performed live at Fenway last weekend at the Red Sox game, "Sweet Caroline" has sold a lot of downloads. But Neil says all that cash will go to the One Fund to help out. Very nice.
