Our friend, slksfca, has been waiting for a hip replacement for some months now, in terrible pain.  He finally got his surgery but it is going to take him awhile to recuperate and fully heal.  The SF Kossacks will be looking in on him -- but as he lives alone, we thought we'd give him something to help pass the time and occupy his mind while he gets better.

More below the fold...

This diary is to organize the gift of a Kindle Fire HD for slksfca, with accessories.  With this, he'll have books, videos, music, and games.  Downton Abbey, baby!

Here's the shopping list (links are for viewing, we'll handle the purchasing!):

Kindle Fire HD -- $199.00

PowerFast charger -- $9.99

2 year warranty and accident protection -- $49.99

Bundle of accessories -- $39.99

Amazon Prime (will give him access to a library of videos and books for one year) -- $79

GRAND TOTAL: $377.97

You can contribute toward this gift by using this PayPal link on the Native American Netroots page (look on the right hand column, half way down the page).  Anything collected beyond the $377.97 will be sent to slksfca as an Amazon gift certificate so that he may buy himself some books and movies.  If you would like to send him an Amazon gift certificate directly, message me!

Thank you for making this happen, from the bottom of my heart.

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.
