9. Donate blood — later.
The Red Cross says it has enough blood now, but the blood supply may need to be replenished later, in the wake of such a large emergency. Blood donations tend to drop in summer, anyway, so the coming months will be a good time — if the marathon bombing made you want to donate, consider doing so anyway. The Red Cross has a tool to help you find where to donate.
