    Smile A Nice Opportunity for our Christmas Album contributors

    I have been contacted by a greeting card company. They want to license the songs in the GPO Annual Christmas Albums (2004, 2005 and the upcoming 2006 albums) for their Christmas cards

    They write: "I just came from your website and was very impressed with what I heard. I am looking for some Christmas music to use with a product I am launching this fall."

    What they are offering is this: "$0.06/song. The minimum order for our Christmas cards is 25, so each time an order is placed and one of your songs is chosen, you would get paid for at least 25 songs."

    Do those that have contributed Christmas songs want to allow this company to use your music for this album? I have no idea how many units we are talking about. It could mean some extra holiday spending money for those what participated. Or we could donate any proceeds to charity.

    Last year's annual Christmas album was a huge success (especially when New York Times writer David Pogue wrote about the album, it brought the server down). This year's album is certain to bring lots of holiday cheer!

    Let me know your thoughts about this opportunity.

    A Very Merry Christmas (a little early),

    Gary Garritan

    Sounds like a great opportunity! 0.06 x 25 = $1.50 for each order... I do like the sound of ka-ching! Right now the music is still being offered on the Garritan site as a free download... would that change at all?

    This is just great!
    I say donate all the money to buy toys and food for homeless children and their families. I don't know how that would be organized though.

    That sounds like a great idea Gary!!

    Dan, here we have a chance to make a few bucks and you want to just give it to the poor and needy! At Christmastime of all things!!!

    Thanks for the guilt trip for wanting moolah!



    I could use the money, but don't NEED it. I suppose the NEEDY and poor really DO NEED IT.

    Shucks, I second Dan's motion. But only as long as I know for sure the money is going where it really will be used for the intended purpose.

    My question is now, can we still sign up for the Christmas CD?

    Although all I would probably do it just remake that christmas piece I did last year...
