Thanks so much for the support! We need it.. The Red Cross is great, but there is another local organization called Hands on Nashville that is better. Here is the link!

Thanks Bob and others for the additional links!

Truthfully my original post was just intended to start a movement of assistance within the GS community regardless of the avenue.

So, I hope everyone will pick the organization they feel comfortable with, and give.

Thank you.

I just donated to MusicCares - I selected the 'Flood" option on the drop down menu.

The engineer relief fund is generally supported by a yearly golf tournament but this disaster is going to cut very deeply into the organization's funds. It was started when it was learned that most of Nashville's leading recording engineers of the '50s and '60s ended up living in total poverty without health insurance or any kind of a pension.

Here for the gear
 

Gladly Donate

I've had to deal with losses from a flood, and so I know how devastating this can be. I'm happy to help in some small way from California.

Hang in there, guys.
