On behalf of Bushari Group Real Estate, our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and families affected by the horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon. There are not words to describe the shock and sadness we feel seeing such a tragedy hit so close to home. With our office only three blocks away, many of our agents, clients and friends witnessed the bombing firsthand, and will forever be changed because of it. We are incredibly thankful for the strength and service of the first responders, doctors and nurses who pulled together to save so many lives. Please find links below to resources describing how you can help support and rebuild our great city.

The One Fund Boston

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino have announced the formation of The One Fund Boston, Inc. to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013. To find out more and to donate, please visit OneFundBoston.org.

Help the Investigation

If you saw something, say something. Thousands of people snapped photos and videos on their smartphones that day. You may have a critical piece of information and not even know it. No detail is too small. Please send photos, videos and any tips or information to the Boston Police Department or FBI.

  • Witnesses or those who may have information should call the Boston Police Department (1-800-494-8477).
  • If you have any visual images, like photos or video, or other information that could shed light on the deadly attacks, call the FBI’s hotline (1-800-CALL-FBI —prompt #3).

Donate Blood

A statement from the DFCI/BWH Blood Donor Center: “The tragic events at the Boston Marathon have led to an overwhelming outpouring of support to the Blood Donor Center. If you’re considering donating blood or platelets, the center requests that you call to schedule a blood or platelet donation and consider scheduling your donation in the coming weeks to help us replenish and maintain the supply of blood products to meet the needs of patients at both Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. To schedule a donation, email blooddoner@partners.org with your preferred donation type (blood or platelets), days you prefer to donate, and a phone number.”
