I did the early registration thing, and was really excited about joining y'all for my first Netroots Nation next month in San Jose.  Ain't gonna happen.  Since registering, I got assigned to direct a small charity serving low income people in my hometown, and I just can't take off in the midst of our start-up phase, still continuing for awhile.

So, I checked with the organizers of NN13 to make sure it was cool, and then decided to put my registration up for auction on ebay to benefit my underfunded (is there another kind?) non-profit agency.

You can bid at:

You'll help us help folks who are falling through the so-called safety net, and maybe get a bargain on your own registration.  Could anything be more win-win?

I'm just closing the office now, so this might look like a hit and run for awhile, but I'll pop in often to answer questions, or just chat.

Thanks for takin' a look at this.

9:24 PM PT: SOLD!  And thanks to all of you, and especially the generous soul who clicked on the "buy it now" button to pony up $100!  (I included that button because I couldn't in conscience sell the registration for substantially more than I had paid for it, even for charity.)  Although, anyone interested in supporting our work with and for people living in the conditions of rural poverty can check out the Augustinian Center of the Columbia Gorge facebook page -- there's a "donate" button there, of course.

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.
