The Dropkick Murphys know how to show their Boston pride.

The Celtic punk band from the Boston suburb of Quincy tweeted they have raised nearly $100,000 to benefit the victims of Monday's Boston Marathon bombing.

The band’s “For Boston” t-shirts, which can be purchased here, are being shipped to Ireland, the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia, the band said in a tweet Thursday. The shirts will begin shipping on April 30.

On Friday, the band played in Los Vegas and tweeted it couldn’t wait to get home to New England. We assume their good deed is enough to earn its member’s a heroes’ welcome, but if that’s not enough, Dropkick Murphys say on their website they have more fundraising plans in store.
