The Special Appeal is a letter to groups requesting that that they make additional financial contributions to the World Service Office. (These contributions are not meant to replace regular group contributions.) The Appeal letter is part of a larger package that includes the WSO Update, information about upcoming International Conventions, and other items.
A letter is sent three times a year to all registered groups requesting contributions from individuals as they are able. Most groups receive the Special Appeal package via emails sent to the group’s WSO contact. A small number of groups opt to receive the package via U.S. mail. (To check or change your preferences, contact the WSO.)
