“I would like to get a list of every local business that got wiped out from the explosion in #Nashville. #We will work together to provide solutions as a group… and find the funds necessary to rebuild and reopen ##NashvilleStrong please help me put this together,” he wrote #Saturday in the first of a series of tweets about the explosion.

#Hours later, #Lemonis announced that he was taking steps to help local businesses by creating a team dedicated to “providing cash/funding, insurance and real estate guidance,” among other things, he wrote on #Twitter. #He later added that he would be putting his own money toward clean-up and reparation efforts.

#Lemonis launched the #Nashville 30 #Day #Fund on #Monday, with the business exec and television personality injecting $500,000 to get the nonprofit off the ground. The fund will provide qualifying people and businesses forgivable loans of up to $100,000.

“The #Nashville 30 #Day #Fund is designed to be quick, easy, and free of red tape, as small business owners and individuals work to recover from the effects of the #Christmas #Day bombing in #Nashville,” the fund’s website states. “#All we ask in return: if you can, pay it forward.

“To those affected, you are not alone,” he tweeted at the time.

#Three people were injured and the person believed to have been behind the attack, #Anthony #Quinn #Warner, was killed.

#Police said #Warner was inside an RV parked on #Second #Avenue #North near an AT&T building, when it began blaring an audio recording urging people nearby to evacuate and warning them that a bomb would detonate in minutes. The ominous recording then switched to #Petula #Clark’s “#Downtown” before the explosion shortly thereafter.

#Investigators have not yet announced an official motive for the attack.

#On #Wednesday, #Lemonis shared photos and videos from #Nashville and encouraged local business owners to meet with him and his team so they could begin the recovery process.
