Last week, two diaries suggested mailing get well cards for Barack's grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, to our Hawaii Headquarters.  I saw the diaries and posted a note indicating that we would make sure to deliver the cards to the family.

I wanted to give you a brief update regarding the amazing outpouring of support from around the country.  As of today, we have received over  1000 cards, letters, and gifts from over 40 states.  We have delivered everything to Barack's family, and we want to thank this community for its outpouring of support and generosity.

We will continue to deliver everything received, but, in the meantime, it's back to GOTV efforts.

Mahalo nui loa,

Andy Winer
Hawaii State Director
Obama for America

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
