Leah, I know you've been talking about getting the fan club together to try and help Nashville in some way. Well, it looks like a group called Hands on Nashville is trying to rally fan clubs to help out with flood relief during Fan Fair. Here's the post and a link to the article:
Nashville has been declared a federal disaster area and our city is still not sure how much damage is underneath all of the water that still fills the streets. BUT there is a light at the end of the tunnel and NASHVILLE WILL RECOVER! Through volunteer and donations you will see Music City rise above the water and make a silver lining of this devastation.
I was surfing Twitter today and ran across a FANTASTIC idea from @julia_kunews. And we are asking everyone who belongs to a Fan Club or plans to attend CMA Fest to accept this mission and help raise Nashville from the waters.
The CMA has announced CMA Fest 2010 is still a go and we will look at this as a starting point to regain our footing and jumpstart the Nashville economy. We are certain there will still be many areas in need of clean up and there will be plenty of ways to volunteer.
Please rally your Fan Club members and/or small groups of people and register with Hands on Nashville. Let them know what day(s) your team will be available to help and what project you would like to work on. You will already be in town and you will be able to say you were a part of bringing the beautiful skyline of Music City back to life. Please consider this mission. CMA Fest is a 4 day festival and any help you can offer will be a tremendous help.
If you plan to take part in this mission and register with Hands on Nashville please let us know. Take pictures of your team and we will make sure to journal all of the stories we receive from you to share with our readers. Keith Urban’s Fan Club is already making their plans to help Nashville, who’s next?
