   One way to show that you are an involved citizen of the global community is to make an additional contribution to Citizens for Global Solutions, either through the web-site at http://www.globalsolutions.org  or by sending a check to Citizens for Global Solutions, 418 Seventh Street SE, Washington DC 20003. The main limitation on our present efforts is the lack of financial resources, and every little bit or big bit makes a big difference.
