Dropkick Murphys and their fans are doing their part to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.  The Beantown-based Celtic rockers have started selling a "For Boston" t-shirt on their website, and they announced via Twitter Thursday that they raised 65-thousand dollars in the first 15-hours of pre-sales. 

The shirts - which are shipping to Europe and Australia as well as the U.S. - are emblazoned with a photo of the Boston skyline on the front along with the words "For Boston."  The back features the city's seal and a message from the band that thanks everyone who buys the tee and explains that all proceeds will go to the victims and the families affected by this week's bombings. 

The shirts are scheduled to ship April 30th, and anyone interested can get more information in the merch section of DropkickMurphys.com
