Internet Raising Millions for Boston Victims, Boat With Bullet Holes

The boat.

While the official One Fund Boston donation pool for victims of the marathon bombing and their families is already over $10 million, the Internet’s crowd-funding is also in the millions for specific victims. Among them are Jeff Bauman, the man brutally wounded in the widespread wheelchair photo who helped identify the suspects ($603,000); a newlywed couple who both suffered severe leg injuries ($629,000); and a couple in their sixties ($115,000), among others. In comparison, the fund to replace the bullet-ridden boat where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found Friday night seems much less important, but even that one has more than $6,700 so far.
