Calls to Action - In support of the Homeless
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.
If not this then what?
If not now then when?
If not you then who?
In the United States alone, 1 out of every
5 children lives in poverty. ( ref. Catholic Campaign for
Human Development, Washington, D.C., 28/03/2000). there is
reason to believe that the stats are similar or worse for every population
of the world. In Toronto, Ontario, Canada, there are over 5,000
children with no permanent address ( no social assistance, no schooling,
no health care etc.)
Please continue to send letter #2 and to support the (below) Beijiing
boycott. Please. The Chinese have been
executing an average of 20 people a day for at least the last 3 months
and AS of the morning (EST/DST) of Friday, July 13, 2001 is has been
decided that China will play host to the Olympics for 2008. The
CSAR goal will remain the same, but our letters are now focused
on influencing the IOC's decision for the next choice of host city for
Please continue to send Letter #2 and the Beijiing Boycott (below)
support of our global goal on behalf of the socially disadvantaged.
#2: to some people in a position to
influence policy of the International Olympic Committee. This will
give us amazing leverage to effect positive social change in any community
which hopes to host forthcoming Olympic events. Presumably the effect
will cascade throughout the hosting country. CSAR's goal
in this letter is to have the International Olympic Selection Committee
( IOC ) add social criteria to the criteria (financial and political) they
now use when selecting sites for future Olympic games. This is a
wonderfully strategic opportunity to cast our votes with people having
influence, opportunity, skills, and resources - urging they make decisions
that appropriately consider the social issues. The social
benefit will be enormous. The IOC has extreme influence overworld-class
cities hoping to host Olympic games. These are the same cities that
so terribly treat the socially disadvantaged. Social standards applied
by the Olympic Committee would clearly have the attention of genesis decision
makers who, in turn, have the power to make things happen as they look
to improve their chances of hosting the games.

Beijiing: English, French, and Spanish access to an internationally
postured boycott responding to China's hosting of the 2008 Olympics
despite their horrific human rights record. Created and sponsored
by the RSF (Reporters without Borders).

#1: to some people directly involved in Toronto's
bid process. Our goal in this letter is
to have social/homeless issues appropriately considered AS
Toronto strategize for their bid to host the 2012 Olympics. These
letters lobby influential decision makers in Canada. It is a general
letter to cast our votes and raise awareness in some of the "genesis decision
makers" ... particularly those in positions of previously untapped influence,
to benefit the homeless, the near homeless, and those who help the
homeless. It is expected that the results will be useful as a model
to address homelessness throughout the world.

#3: to some people/corporations who
are helping to finance Toronto's bid for the Olympics. This letter
is designed to lobby the officials of some of the more visible corporations
( more "genesis" decision makers ) which are helping to finance the
activities of Toronto's Olympic Bid committee. CSAR hopes
to use the compassion of these corporate officials to get "social leverage"
on the bidding process so that decisions that positively impact the homeless
are made. The support of corporate sponsors is important because
they provide much of the money required to finance the costly activities/phases
of the process. Send your letters and the effect will be extraordinary.

The important thing is to actually send your letters in support of the
homeless and make your presence felt with people in influential positions.

People have asked: " If we don't live in the Toronto
area, what good would it do to send these letters?" Click
here for our response.
Please remember our success depends on your
willingness to send the letters and to encourage
others to participate. Remind them often to remind others.
Those who are less able to be assertive are dependent on those who are
more able - for the moment. We can encourage a sustainable
environment - together. This is a wonderful opportunity for a
activity with each member of the family sending their own "set" of
votes. Our attitude determines the future opportunities of our
children!! It is what we do when we don't have to that will determine
what we will be when we can no longer help it.
