Bright & (Not So) Early: Aftermath Edition

Good morning, Nashville. By now, we’re sure everyone has heard about the massive earthquake that struck Haiti yesterday. Eight Nashvillians were in Haiti doing mission work at the time and survived, notifying church members and friends back home by text message. Congressman Jim Cooper is working closely with the State Department to identify and locate any other Tennesseans who might have been caught in the quake so that US officials can organize some rescue and recovery missions. If you have any information about folks who might be stranded, call Rep. Cooper’s local office at 615-736-5295. For those looking for a quick and easy way to contribute to relief efforts, you can donate $10 to the Red Cross by simply texting “HAITI” to 90999.
