E-Newsletter March/April 2013

On April 15, we were shocked and saddened by the horrific bombing at the Boston Marathon. Here in Boston, it has been hard to see so many images of our hometown shattered and to hear stories of tremendous loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this tragedy. To help, we have pledged $50,000 to The One Fund, which was formed to raise money for those most in need. We invite you to read this issue of the E-Newsletter for other news of Foundation giving in the cause of hope and peace around the world.
