p.s. There are cca 1000 letters that need to be published, but there is no time for few volunteers to accomplish all of this. With your support only, after we could employ one person to do it a full time job, then we will be able to fulfill the need that you are asking for.
Never doubt that a small, group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
