Now here's a worthy cause, and it comes with a chance to win a huge music prize.  A tax receipt, too.  It's win-win for your charity donation.  A fellow blogger, and good guy, Bryan Acker, has joined up with the Ride To Conquer Cancer group, essentially a great big bike ride to raise funds.  It's a personal challenge for Acker, as his father is currently battling brain cancer.

William Acker is a doctor in Halifax, and his son Bryan runs the very popular and influential Herohill site.  He's been taking donations for his ride for the cancer group, but now the ante has been raised with a great prize package for one lucky donor.  Who knows, your donation could be the winner, and you know the money is going to the right place.  Acker's pals in the music biz have come through, specifically homeboy Joel Plaskett.  Since Plaskett runs his own label, New Scotland, the boss said "open the vaults", and they did.  Some lucky donor is going to win the complete New Scotland catalog of CD's, LP's, DVD's, and 45's.  And when Joel is involved in the discs, he's going to autograph them all to the winner.

This includes the mighty 8-disc Thrush Hermit box set, all of Joel's CD's and vinyl releases (yes, you get a copy of both), albums from Steve Poltz, Dave Marsh, Al Tuck, Peter Elkas and Big Sugar, plus the entire run of 45's the label recently put out, non-LP cuts by Plaskett, Jeremy Fisher, David Myles, Shotgun Jimmy and more.  Wow.
