The Special Appeal is a triannual request from the S-Anon World Service Office for 7th Tradition donations. Please share this appeal with your group and consider making a contribution today!
Dear S-Anon Members,
When I first started doing service above the local level as an Intergroup Representative, I was asked by my group members why the S-Anon World Service Office (WSO) needs 7th Tradition money. On a practical level, there’s the cost of office space, equipment and supplies, paying special employees as per Tradition 8, and keeping voicemail and websites active and updated. For many, the WSO is the first point of contact in their journey to serenity through the S-Anon program.
When I became an Area Delegate, I understood even more. The WSO also assists with travel and lodging compensation to make it easier for the Area Delegates to participate in our annual World Service Conference. Your Area Delegate’s participation gives you a voice in policy, motions and discussions of issues concerning S-Anon as a whole. I’ve also gotten to know the committees that keep us going, such as Literature which keeps CAL up to date and is working diligently to create our own Traditions pamphlets, and Public Information and Outreach which focuses on spreading our message and reaching out to educate professionals about the S-Anon program.
My hope is that by understanding how the WSO impacts every S-Anon member, you will understand that each member’s 7th Tradition donation supports the WSO, creating a tradition cycle where members can continue to help members through mutual aid. We greatly appreciate your contribution!
New Jersey Area Delegate
