I got this from NARAS (The Grammy's). As music lovers here is a great
way to help "Music City".
By now we have all seen the devastating and profoundly life-altering
effects of the recent and unexpected floods that hit Nashville and
its surrounding areas. Many in this music community have experienced
significant losses, and many of the city's iconic music landmarks
have suffered irreparable damage. It's times like these when we must
come together and help those who need it most. In light of these
circumstances, The Recording Academy® and its MusiCares® Foundation
which provides a safety net of critical services for music people in
crisis have established the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund
Emergency assistance already has begun, and 100 percent of every
dollar raised will be immediately distributed to help those in the
Nashville music community that are victims of the floods. Donations
to MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief may be made at www.musicares.com/
NashvilleFloodRelief. MusiCares' initial assistance will provide
funds for food and clothing, gasoline and transportation, clean-up
efforts, relocation costs, medicine, and other critical supplies. To
apply for assistance, please contact the South Regional office at
615.327.0050 or toll free at 877.626.2748. A list of resources for
flood victims is also available at the above link.
I encourage you to help in any way you can, and let's all keep our
friends who have been affected by this tragic event in our thoughts.
