Yes! Any donation helps support the victims of the Boston incident, even if it’s just a dollar. Imagine if everyone who visited this site contributed one dollar… that’s a lot of dollars.
Yes! Thanks to the good people all over the internet our website has been proven to be legitimate, that is, not a scam. For a fairly lengthy discussion on the topic visit this Reddit post. We were also in the news, as posted here. We understand that there are a lot of scams out there, so we welcome all of the scrutiny that has been placed on us, and hope that it can put future donators at ease. No hard feelings for all who were initially skeptical!
We fully support The Scott Rigsby Foundation, an organization that created a special fund to aid the victims of the Boston tragedy. They will be receiving any payments made through the donations button on this site, and will handle disbursement of the funds to those in need. For more information about that organization, visit their website (http://www.scottrigsbyfoundation.org).
Yes! The Scott Rigsby Foundation is a 501(C)(3) organization, as such, any donation is tax deductible, generally up to 50% of your adjusted gross income. Should you choose to donate, you will receive a confirmation email for your tax records.
I’m glad you asked! Harris Stolzenberg had the idea for this project, and this site was built by a small group of future MIT students who met through the MIT admitted student’s Facebook page. After putting the site together, we worked together to spread the word about the project through the news and internet.
First of all you’re awesome! Second of all please use this submission form and we will get back with you as soon as possible!
The Boston Marathon requires Males under 35 to complete a marathon with under a 7 minute mile. Because Harris is not a world class runner, that will probably not be possible. However, there is a good chance that we could get a charity exception (that doesn’t have as stringent qualifying times), but if that does not work someone will run that qualified will run in place of Harris. Harris will also compete in a marathon that does not require qualification times if he is unable to run in the Boston Marathon.
