Three times a year the S-Anon Board of Trustees (BOT) sends out a special request for member and group contributions to support the work of the S-Anon World Service Office (WSO). As the central headquarters of the S-Anon organization, the WSO is responsible for a wide range of efforts to help newcomers and members connect with and participate in the S-Anon fellowship, including the printing and distribution of S-Anon Conference Approved Literature.

For this Special Appeal letter, one of the sponsoring editors for the upcoming publication Along the Journey: The Story of S-Anon’s First Forty Years highlights the many service hours and costs associated with producing new literature. Contributions—and the sale of literature!—help the WSO continue to provide services to the fellowship and newcomers. Thank you for considering making a contribution to the WSO!

There are other ways you can provide your support—spread the word! Share this Special Appeal letter among the groups you attend and encourage others to buy Along the Journey: The Story of S-Anon’s First Forty Years when it’s available for purchase. Here are some ideas for sharing this message:

  • Copy/paste and send the following brief message to your group contact list via email, text message, or the chat function of your virtual meeting space:

“The S-Anon World Service Office Special Appeal has arrived!  Read the letter at and contribute either contribute via PayPal at, Venmo Charities @sanon_wso, or on the S-Anon website Your contribution is greatly appreciated!”

  • Read the Special Appeal letter to your groups for three consecutive meetings during the Seventh Tradition collection time and ask members to contribute either during the meeting or directly to the WSO.
  • Share the direct links for contributing directly to the WSO via, or Venmo @sanon_wso.
