Looks like every now and then some good news sneaks onto the internet.  Ford donating Gibsons to Vets with PTSD.

That's cool, but why is the Ford motor company doing it and not Gibson. I did not see Gibson donated 25 k worth of guitars to Ford or did I not read it wrong.

No, you didn't read it wrong.   It would certainly have been a much better story if it were Gibson donating the guitars.   I guess Ford didn't want to donate cars.  I just thought it was cool that they chose Gibson Acoustics, and jazzed them up.   If this is a donation of $25K - That's maybe 25 guitars.  Ford's not making  much of a dent.  Pun intended.

Canadians can donate to vets thru guitars for vets at Long-Mcquade, good on Ford.

Did anyone catch the Country Music Awards last night. Luke Combs did team up with Ford and Gibson for guitars for vets. But the one thing I noticed there was not a 
acoustic guitar brand that wasn't a Gibson all night! Tons of all flavors and even Taylor Swift played a Gibson instead of her usual Taylor. A couple Teles and Sho=Bud slides
but the rest were all product placement Gibby!

I did notice that. I think my favorite performance was Carrie Underwood.
