Adidas has announced it will donate all proceeds from the sale of its new "Boston stands as one" T-shirt to The One Fund, which was established to aid victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
The shirts, on sale now online, cost $26.20.
"The selflessness and compassion demonstrated by the City of Boston, the first responders, the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) and all marathon volunteers in providing assistance to the injured have stuck with us and inspired us," said Patrik Nilsson, President of adidas America, in an announcement distributed by the Boston Athletic Association. "We commend Boston - and of those associated with the City and the Marathon - for their reaction to this very challenging situation. We applaud them for standing together as one on Monday and in the days which have followed."
