That is, what we’ve got, what we’re waiting for, and what we can still use.
After the flip, I’m going to start with the list of things that we’re still waiting to get, followed by items that we’ve already purchased, and the things that have been promised but are still awaiting arrival.
And while I’m talking about purchasing, let me note that we’re still taking donations and currently have about $1,300 left in the bank awaiting our big shopping day on Friday.
Also, check the flipside for a special announcement, and the end of the diary for other ways you can help.

As you may know, Netroots For The Troops, a collaborative effort by members of the Daily Kos, IGTNT and Mojo Friday communities, will be holding a Special Event/Seminar at Netroots Nation on Saturday, July 19th from 2 PM to 4 PM.
We are pleased to announce some special guests with an important and unique perspective on the topic of Troop Care Packages who will be joining us to talk about both the past and the future.
Join us on the flip for more information, plus some new ways that you can help our efforts!

For the last few weeks, the IGTNT and Mojo Friday communities have been asking you to help them with Netroots For The Troops — a project planned for Netroots Nation 2008 in Austin, July 17-20 — that hopes to send 101 troop care packages to American soldioers curently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, supplying them with everyday sundries — including work gloves, phone cards, underwear and protein bars — that the government refuses to provide them, despite spending billions of dollars a week.
What we realized, however, is that while we’ve been primarily asking for money, there are a number of other free-yet-equally-important and relevant ways that you can support this effort.
For details, join me on the flip side…

If you’re a kossack, and live within 100 miles of Cleveland, Ohio, then this diary is for you.
(and if you’re not, feel free to go visit the original diary and rec. it anyway, so those of us who are within that area can see it!)
Another good reason to rec this over there: Wouldn’t it be nice to see a non-Primary race diary on the Big-O rec list? 😉
