We are trying to get 4Freedom to Netroots Nation. She has her registration and even has a room reserved; however her business has basically bottomed out over the last month or so and she doesn't have the cash to get the other things taken care of. Here is a bit of a note from her:

Airfare - $554 - unless I can find a ride. Will try but haven't connected yet.

Room - will split 3-4 ways. Shouldn't be more than $250

Food   - $30/day x 4 = $120

I have a pass, so I won't need to pay for that. Bought one when things looked a little greener :)

Looks like the goal using those numbers would be $924. Other years I have taken along lots of dried nuts and fruits and munch those instead of eating in restaurants. Will share. I have good munchies! If we can pull this off, at least I'll be able to share snacks with you and friends. It really helps cut expenses.

When we were trying desperately to get me to NN, she offered to share her room with me, so the very least I can do is help pull this together for her. I will note here and now that we will not suffer fools and if you come in here starting trouble, we will finish that trouble for you and I will not suffer any complaints that I am allowing piling on or any other sort of horse manure.

Her paypal address, which is a business address is Unfortunately, she maxed out her credit cards making sure the store shelves were stocked, which is why she can't just add it to her credit cards.

Now, in exchange for your kindness in helping out with this issue, here are some pootie pictures:

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.
