Yes indeed, the Netroots Nation annual auction opens Thursday, August 15, and is sure to include lots of items that y'all have come to love about this auction -  political and entertainment memorabilia, signed books, artwork, travel opportunities, one-of-a-kind experiences and so much more.

However...the success of this auction depends, in part, on donations from our community. So, make a donation today! You can either donate online here or contact Karen Kolber at Karen at netroots nation dot org and let her know what item(s) you have to donate.

Don't know what to donate? Take a look below and view some of the items that have been donated in the past as well as ones that will be in the upcoming auction.

First of all, items that have been donated in the past include:

•    Suites at Netroots Nation Convention hotels
•    One-on-one meetings with Howard Dean, Nate Silver and others
•    Vacation homes in exotic locales (like Maine!)

This year's donations so far include:

Netroots Nation Pub Quiz 2012
Have your team get a jump on everyone by learning the first two categories of the 2014 Chairman's Pub Quiz before anyone else. This was a sought after item last year with the increasing popularity of the Pub Quiz. Win this competition and you'll be sought after by MSNBC, Buzzfeed and possibly 74-time Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings.

So please donate today! All proceeds benefit Netroots Nation, which allows our community to come together for insight, networking and partnership building. Oh, and some drinking has been rumored to take place after hours. I'll have to check into that.

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.
