Rasmussen Family - Nashville Christmas Bombing

Christmas morning in downtown Nashville, TN a bombing destroyed the home of our friends the Rasmussens. Jeff, Noelle, Benji (4) and Jude (1) walked away with the clothes on their backs.  The future is uncertain as to if anything in their condo is even salvageable from the blast and the water damage from the sprinklers. We are trying to raise funds to help them buy essentials to get them through this difficult time. 

Here are Noelle's words about the incident:

"We are safe. Thank you to everyone who has reached out. Sorry if I don’t respond (we’re trying to take care of immediate needs like getting prescriptions filled, diapers,  formula, etc.  We left in pajamas and only grabbed the diaper bag on the way out). The downtown explosion was right in front of our building and blew through it, ripping off the front side. We might not have much of a home to come back to, but we have all that really matters- our lives. Right now, we’re so grateful for the policeman and police woman who woke us up banging on our door at 5:55am telling us to evacuate for a suspected safety threat. THEY ARE HEROES. As we drove away, not knowing what was going on at all, trying to figure out what to do  and where to go (most everything is closed for Christmas & Covid is raging in Nashville) I was looking back at our building as the explosion went off. A huge fireball at least twice as high as our building. We were able to go back and get close enough to see the back windows of our condo are blown out (right where our Christmas tree is), water pouring from the building, and the front side crumbling down."
