We ask that you consider contributing as individuals, or by passing the Seventh Tradition basket a second time at your meeting during one week in July to collect additional funds for the ISO.
This is one of two special Seventh Tradition appeals we hold each year to help underwrite the important outreach activities that enable the ISO to support you, as you seek to reach out to the addict who still suffers.
If you are passing the basket a second time in your group, perhaps you could read this short statement, or make a similar announcement:
“I encourage you to look at giving as an opportunity to practice Step Twelve. Reaching out to help others in need is an age old spiritual practice. It changes us. In the very act of reaching out, we receive healing. There's a blessing to be had. And you will be a blessing to the addict who still suffers.”
Alternatively donate by check, payable to "ISO."
Mark it "Freedom Week" , include the name of your group (if any), and mail it to:
PO Box 70949
Houston, TX 77270
The ISO thanks you for your support!
