Mike Sheehan, treasurer and board member of One Fund says two months after administrators paid out the total amount collected – just over $60 million – another $10 million has come in.

Sheehan says the response has been incredible.

Sheehan also says the generosity of Boston ‘s business community can’t be overstated.

Right now. he says an assessment is underway on how best to distribute the money in hand now.

L.L. Bean is now unveiling a new tote bag to raise money for the One Fund.

All proceeds of the bag go to the fund.

Countless other businesses have created products to benefit the One Fund as well.
