You already know we’re trying to change GearPipe for ‘good’ by planning a sustainable musical instrument donation program, called ‘Pick Education.’ It won’t be cheap to get this started, so we’ve applied for a $2,500 grant from GOOD Magazine to act as seed money. Voting has been going on for about a week (the winner is decided by a public vote), and our idea has been between #1 and #3 the entire time. Voting ends Thursday, March 29 at 12:00 PM PDT.
I know we have enough GearPipe readers to win this thing, so I’m sweetening the deal for you! I have a Line 6 POD HD300 multi-effects pedal that Line 6 sent me for review. If we win this grant, I will give the HD300 to one of you. If we don’t win, I’ll donate it to a music education program that needs it.
A few guys on Facebook who really believe in this program have offered to throw in some other prizes. Randy Saunders is offering up a $50 Musicians Friend gift card plus the prize from the next giveaway he wins. Jeffrey Sawyer will give someone a John Lennon Educational Tour Bus guitar cable that he won. If you have something you’d like to add to the prize pool, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

2. Click the “Vote for This Idea” button. If you’re not already registered at GOOD, you’ll need to create a user name. But don’t worry about spam. Immediately after you register, you can click a link to opt out of all emails.
3. Your vote should be cast! If we win, you could win the POD HD300!
This program really does mean a lot to me, and I appreciate your help. You’re also doing something great for kids, so you’ll earn your karma points for the day.
If we win, I’ll then announce the POD HD300 giveaway right here on GearPipe. Thanks all!!!
