Want to Help? Here's how!

What's the Point
So, we have a charming, quaint village in the heart of a nation miles away. So why help, why bother?

After World War I America turned its back on Germany and Europe while our victorious allies extracted their reparations. The result was a humiliated, super-depressed Germany that turned to Hitler as its "last, best hope" for revival.

After WWII we offered the Marshall Plan and not only gained Germany as a friend and ally, but also stabilized Central Europe, Western Europe and contained Communism. Nice investment.

We have the same option now: help the former Soviet Block countries, or turn our backs and await the explosion.

Some of us in Fort Wayne (who are these people) have decided to help a village where we can make a difference. We have mustered the area Lions Clubs to help. Local educators have pitched in. Some business people have stepped forward. Friends in Baltimore have joined the effort.
