If you’ve been attending S-Anon for some time now, you may have heard someone in your meeting mention the Special Appeal. The Special Appeal, a tri-annual request for financial contributions, plays an integral role in supporting the work of the S-Anon World Service Office. The financial boost from these donations goes directly to support the day-to-day operations of the WSO but considering many groups have changed the way they are able to collect 7th Tradition contributions, we are keenly aware how this may affect the WSO long term.
This new normal has challenged us all to adapt in many ways, and we hope that individuals, groups, and intergroups can find creative ways to practice the 7th Tradition during this time. We’re here with some suggestions to help spread the word about this appeal:
- Copy/Paste this brief message to your group contact list via email or text message, or in the chat function of your virtual meeting space:
The S-Anon World Service Office Special Appeal has arrived! Read the letter at member.sanon.org/juneappeal and contribute via PayPal at paypal.me/sanonwso or on the S-Anon website sanon.org/donate. Thank you for your contribution!
- Read the letter to your groups for three consecutive meetings and “pass the group’s virtual basket” or ask members to contribute directly to the WSO.
- Is your group’s donation collection on hold for the time being? We’ve got you covered! Share the direct links for contributing directly to the WSO via paypal.me/sanonwso or sanon.org/donate.
- Forward the Special Appeal email to your groups and ask your intergroup to help spread the message as well.
Thank you for going above and beyond to ensure the WSO continues to be financially supported by the fellowship and thank you for spreading the word about this Special Appeal.
