Dear Fellow Travelers,
Every ACA group’s primary purpose is to carry the message to adult children still suffering, everywhere. Some may take for granted that there is a “Big Red Book” available in every language, but the fact is that countries around the world do not have access to any ACA literature in their native language. Providing translated literature is one of the most important services the World Services Organization (WSO) performs on behalf of ACA groups.
WSO IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING A SHORTAGE OF 7th TRADITION DONATIONS WHICH THREATENS OUR PURPOSE. WE NEED YOU AND YOUR GROUP TO HELP US.
What does WSO do with your donations?
- Translates and publishes literature in other languages
- Pays special workers to keep accounts and manage technology
- Maintains physical and virtual assets like warehouses and Websites
Why are WSO donations lower than expected?
- Many meetings that were in person pre-pandemic and were regularly collecting 7th tradition contributions are no longer collecting them and donating to WSO.
What can you do?
- Ask your group to collect 7th tradition contributions at the meeting.
- Online meetings can STOP their meeting for 1-2 minutes to allow members to contribute to your group’s virtual basket without missing any of the meeting.
- Ask your group to donate at least quarterly down to your group’s prudent reserve amount.
- Consider making a personal monthly recurring donation directly to WSO.
With your help WSO will be able to maintain a release schedule of 3 or more newly translated literature pieces per year to reach even more adult children who are suffering.
Here is the link to the donations webpage. You may choose the way you want to make a one-time donation or set up an automatic monthly donation in any amount.
Thank you for your service and your donations to help carry the message!
The WSO Finance Committee
