This isn't going to be much of a diary and for that I apologize.  I just wanted to bring attention back to this morning's ShelterBox diary

Only $125 shy of closing out box #133.  

Update:  Just $50 needed to close it out, thanks to donations from sherijr and lp3161

Update 2:  Well, hell.  Guess we hit a wall at $950. Tried to pimp in an open thread but no takers. Close but no cigar.  Yet.  We'll get it next week;)

Carolina Stargazer is on the road and I think it would be nice if she were to check in and see that box closed out and #134 started.

I know there are a lot of issues that need attention right here at home but the ShelterBox diaries are also a worthy cause and have been steadfast despite receiving little attention every time they're posted. It would be very easy to get discouraged and stop but they realize that every little bit helps and continue to post diaries every week to slowly eek out box after box.  Boxes that are invaluable to those who have nothing, in areas hit hard by disaster and will continue to need help for some time to come.  

So I am asking for help in closing out box #133.  

ShelterBoxUSA donation page

You can choose a set amount or you can scroll down to the box where you type in your own amount.  

It won't take much to close it out.  Just 5 people donating $25.  Or 13 donating $10.  Or 25 people donating $5 if that's all you can spare.  

If you would like to help, please go to carolina stargazer's diary and put the amount of your donation in your comment heading, or send an email to TexMex or carolina stargazer, so they can keep track of all the dailykos contributions.

P.S. In the comments of that diary, the box total was mistakenly stated as $900 and then $925 but then corrected to $875 due to an extra fifty being added in there that shouldn't have been.  (sorry for pointing out your mistake allie123;).  I just don't want people not scolling down far enough to mistakenly think that the number was/is higher than it actually is before we hit the $1000 mark.)

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.
