Boston Marathon Bombings: How To Help
Sadly, this week we were reminded once again of the fragility of life and the resilience of the human spirit. Terence, myself, and the PatternBuilders team send our condolences to all who were impacted by this tragedy. For those who would like to help, donations can be made to:

- Boston’s First Responders Fund—also specifically established to benefit the victims of the bombings.
