We note that the IOC (International Olympic Committee)
applies strict economic and political criteria to their selection decisions
for locating Olympic games. We are committed
to lobby the IOC to respectfully apply social criteria in their selection
of Olympic locations. In the United
States alone, 1 out of every 5 children lives in poverty. ( ref.

CSAR is an internet based campaign supporting the homeless. We use the internet to distribute prewritten letters designed to be easily printed out and mailed (by regular mail) to select decision makers. All the names and addresses required are provided. Using the ready-made letters supplied on the website, one can vote to support the homeless in about 7 minutes.
We strive to unite identified leaders of business, academia, professionals, and politicians to use their influence/resources/positions to effect an enduring, comprehensive, and effective response to the homeless challenge. Instead of dealing with the "alligators" on an individual basis, is it possible to drain the swamp? We note that we are not only interested in giving the challenged a compassionate “hand out”; but, we are very interested in giving those who want it a “hand up”.
