Boston Marathon Fundraising – UPDATE

Last week, I launched a one-week fundraising campaign where all affiliate commissions I made within that period would be donated to the One Boston Fund for victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. I had many credit card links clicked on but I do not know yet which ones were approved (I only get a commission for card applications that are approved). If you did apply last week and were approved, please just leave a comment below with the card you were approved for so that I know to check with them about it if it doesn’t post (it almost always does). Once I get the final numbers in on the numbers, I will post them here and the amount that is being sent to One Boston Fund. Thank you for reading and helping out like this!
