I was in tears by the end. What could I do to help? Well, Teresa was feeling the same way and in true Green Bag Lady form, she decided to get involved - with bags! She contacted me and a few others to request a donation of fabric for a fund raiser for Nashville flood relief. Normally Teresa doesn't sell her bags she gives them away but for this emergency she is donating the bags in hopes of raising money to rebuild Nashville. Of course, my answer was YES! So I sent her a roll of our 100% organic light green twill and with the help of volunteers (including several other professors at Belmont University where Teresa works) 500 bags have been sewn and are available for purchase/donation from The Cool People Care site.
Teresa was featured yesterday on Fox channel 17 in Nashville. I am proud and honored to be a small part of the "cool people who care".
