(Radio.com) After the horrific bombing at this year's Boston Marathon, local punk rockers Dropkick Murphys quickly sprang into action. The band initiated a "For Boston" campaign to raise money for the victims and their families, which included a benefit t-shirt, an April 28 concert at the House of Blues and the Rose Tattoo: For Boston Charity EP which features Bruce Springsteen on the song "Rose Tattoo."

It was announced this week that the Claddagh Fund, the Dropkick Murphys' charitable foundation, donated over $300,000 raised by the "For Boston" initiative to more than 60 people whose lives were changed forever by the Boston Marathon bombing.

"Every single person we had the pleasure of meeting expressed a positive attitude and an incredible sense of perseverance as they work hard to return to the lives they enjoyed before the tragic day in April," said Dropkick Murphys bassist and vocalist Ken Casey, who met with many of the donation recipients. "We were humbled by the kindness of our friends and fans who got behind this cause with so much heart and passion, it was truly an honor to be able to represent them and contribute, even if in a small way, to help these inspirational individuals." more on this story
