Ever since Daily Kos has been around, we as a community have contributed hundreds of thousands of dollars - if not millions - to various candidates and causes.  In the process, we've had some success.    

One thing we have always excelled at is extending a helping hand to one of our own in need.  Those of us in distress have had to deal with the hand life deals us.  So is the case here where Fineena has lost everything she had after the 2008 financial crisis, along with battling unexpected illnesses.  Many of you know that she was a max donor to the 2008 Obama Campaign.  Those days seem very far away, a distant memory.

She has tried her best to make an honest living.  Now, she needs a bit of help (about $1200.00 more) to start afresh.  

Here's How You Can Help Fineena

  • Please recommend this diary posted late last night by edrie - fineena needs our help to put a roof over her head!  You can read all the details in her diary.  Do help to keep it on the Rec List by sharing it on your Facebook pages, Tweeting it, and republishing to your DK Groups.
  • Buy a scarf or cowl from Fineena's ETSY shop - Willie Ru Designs.
  • If at all possible, you can donate (however small the contribution) directly to her PayPal account ( is Fineena's email address).  You do not need a PayPal account to contribute.  Simply go to, enter Fineena's email address, amount, and send it as a gift.

As you can read in edrie's diary, a better future is well within Fineena's reach.  Please help her get there - today, if possible.  

Thank you very much in advance for your generosity.

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.
