Gratitude Month Almost Over!
Gratitude Month is a time set aside, each November, for us to express thanks to the Fellowship. In the Bay Area, this is traditionally practiced by passing the 7th Tradition basket a second time, with the entirety of the collection from the second basket being contributed to Central Office**. Let’s end this year’s Gratitude Month with a bang! How did your group celebrate this November?
**Please Note: for Group or Individual contribution, include “Gratitude Month” on the memo line of your check or in the Notes field online, so that it will be properly recorded.
Corrections Correspondence is Always Needed!
Ever hear of Corrections Correspondence? A.A. is always in need of members on the “outside” to correspond with A.A. members in correctional facilities. If you would like to share your experience, strength and hope with A.A.s who are confined, please download the informational pamphlet online. The tear-off portion (sample image below) can be sent to G.S.O.’s Corrections Desk or emailed to [email protected]. The name of an inmate, selected at random from a geographic region different from your own, will be sent to you from the General Service Office and you will make the initial contact through the mail.
Gift The Grapevine this Holiday Season!
Round out the year by joining The Grapevine in their Carry the Message Project by giving a gift subscription of The Grapevine or La Viña to an alcoholic in need. Great for sponsees, newcomers, institutions, doctor’s offices, group celebrations, events and giveaways! Please see here for details.
