More Nashville responses: While the online Red Cross donations are great, I felt better doing some face-to-face responding yesterday, so I went to the Gaylord Entertainment Center to make a contribution. Folks from several media outlets will be there again today collecting money.
Also, my friends at the Nashville-based national magazine for members of the National Guard and their families, GX Magazine, have established the GX Family Relief Fund. More information about the fund will be available on GX Online later today.
From Mitch Powers, GX magazine publisher:
“We have established the GX Family Relief Fund to accept donations that will go directly to aid Guard members and family affected by hurricane Katrina. 1,000’s of Guard members and their families are devastated by this catastrophe. Many Louisiana Guard members are returning from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan to find their homes destroyed and family evacuated. Not only this, but many will be re-deployed to assist with this domestic mission as well. The GX Family Relief Fund will forward 100% of every donation to the appropriate state agencies in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi for direct distribution to Guard members and their families. GX magazine will be matching the first $5000 dollars in donations.”
