Paying Down The National Debt: Your Donation Gladly Accepted

Greece is in big trouble. But you can help!

The National Bank of Greece has set up a "Solidarity Account" that will be used to pay down the country's debt. Make your deposit (free of charge!) by Internet, phone, or wire transfer to account number 040/541599-36

Or, if you'd prefer to help the U.S. pay its own public debt, the Treasury would be glad to take your money. They've set up a convenient online form to make it easy.

"Welcome to the United States Treasury's site for making donations to help reduce the public debt," the form says. "If you would like to make a donation, please fill in the required fields and click the Submit Data button when completed."
