BRIDGE THE GAP PROGRAM:

Be a temporary contact between the treatment facilities and outside AA.

This is a commitment to help the newcomers integrate into A.A., when they

get home from treatment. You would meet them at their first meeting

(hopefully the day or day after they get out). Introduce them to people in

the program, help them get numbers, a meeting schedule, literature etc. Stay

in touch, maybe meet them at a second or third meeting. This is such a great

way to do service work and help a newcomer by guiding him or her through the

first week or so!

Ian is our BTG representative! His phone # is 719-684-5173.

Contact him if any volunteers are interested in participating.

FAITHFUL FIVERS:

Central Office Could Really Use Some Financial Support

So we can give away what was so freely given to us...

It's a good way to help the Central Office with your 12

step work. We can support with financial aid when we

cannot give our time. If you would like to contribute in

this way, call the Central Office, e-mail the office manager,

Stop by & pick up a "5er's form". Thanks in advance.

 

"The basket"... Something to consider.

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

Some facts:

* Less than 44% of groups contribute to the General Service Office.

* Costs of Services provided by G.S.O. are $6.32 per member per year

* A.A. literature sales account for 56% of G.S.O.'s income.

Personal thoughts:

* What is the value of your sobriety?

* Does your group know that contributions may be made online at AA.org?

* Give until it feels good.

Self-Support:

The Seventh Tradition states: "Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting,

declining outside contributions."

While contributions cover each group's rent and other expenses, the Seventh Tradition

is essential at every level of A.A. service. It is both a privilege and a responsibility for

groups and members to ensure that not only their group, but also their Intergroup/central

office, local services, district, area, and the General Service Office remain self-supporting.

This keeps A.A. free of outside influences that might divert us from our primary purpose -

to help the alcoholic who still suffers.

The amount of our contribution is secondary to the spiritual connection that unites all groups

around the world.
