    ...and you're invited to help. An earlier thread kind of evolved into several of us getting together a nice little present, from Talkbass.com, for some sick kids at Scottish Rite Children's Hospital in Atlanta, GA. See the whole story here:

    http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=32250

    As you can see, some contributed goodies, some donated a bit o' cash, but we still need a few more small contributions to cover the $150 cost of the Yamaha bass we're giving away. Anybody else wanna get involved? If so, PM or email me and I'll give you details on where to send donations.

    Any monetary donations over and above the cost of the bass will be contributed directly to the hospital or used to buy them something to go along with the bass stuff.

    Thanks to all who join in!

    Whatta Man! Thanks, Pacman! Herm is pitching in some strings for the bass, but we'll definitely find some good use for it.

    ask not what Talkbass can do for you, but what you can do for your bass playing bretheren. Happy Holidays.

    Well, as I'm the one who is delivering the bass on Wednesday to the hospital, I can assure you it's on the up and up.

    Apologies to the mods for the duplicate post...but this needs to be said twice!
    *******************************
    Hey Folks, we've compiled enough donations to cover the cost of the bass, and along with the goodies kicked in by other generous Talkbassers, we've got a nice present for Scottish Rite.

    Big, Big Thanks to all who contributed! You guys helped make MY Christmas better!

    Keep an eye out for Bassmonkee's delivery of the stuff to the hospital...
