Annual Appeal LifeLines do make a difference!

While all donations are greatly appreciated, lifelines alone provide the steady, predictable income that allows for planning of complex and long-term projects. The growth in the number of lifeline partners from 184 in June, 2012 to over 570 as of Jan 1, 2016 has allowed the ISO to provide unprecedented levels of support for outreach projects during 2015. Three major multi-media outreach projects were conducted in Houston, Phoenix, and New York City. These projects reached several million people! Additional outreach projects will be supported by LifeLines in 2016. Thank you for making your annual appeal donation a lifeline!

In case you haven't heard…
SAA has completed the $30,000 donor matching gift challenge!

You may have previously heard about SAA's first donor matching gift challenge which offered a matching donation for all new or increased LifeLines up to $30,000. Thanks to all 124 SAA members who responded to the challenge. We qualified for the entire $30,000 matching gift in just 120 days! While your annual appeal LifeLine will not be matched, it is still a very valuable and needed contribution!

Dear Members of the SAA Fellowship,

For most of us, addiction to compulsive sexual behavior caused pain to us and those around us. We experienced overwhelming hopelessness, fear, and shame. Many of us lost families and friends or lost jobs and careers. Some of us were incarcerated as a result of our addiction, and some of us died. Sex addiction destroys many things that are priceless - spirituality, intimacy, relationships, and families.

Our message of recovery - the SAA program - can make a difference. We have seen lives transformed. We have seen hopelessness turned into hope. We have seen relationships restored and new healthy relationships formed. We do make a difference for many who suffer from sex addiction.

The ISO was established by the SAA fellowship to support and enhance the capacity of our members to support each other and to carry the message of SAA to the addict who still suffers. We serve as an important communications and support nucleus for the fellowship. We register new meetings, develop literature, maintain active websites, and support other vital outreach efforts.

As a member of SAA, you have an opportunity to change the world - one life at a time. Have you experienced the gift of recovery through SAA? Are you grateful for this gift? Do you want others who suffer from sex addiction to be able to learn about our fellowship and to find our meetings? If you could, would you share the gift of freedom with a person still struggling?

The ISO needs your support to helps us serve a fellowship that has been growing at ten percent a year for over a decade. None of us can do it alone, but, working together, we can have an enormous positive impact on this serious problem. We need to develop more and better resources to attract the addict who still suffers to our program. We need more literature that carries the SAA message. We need to help our international members by translating our message in their language.

All of these vital activities need your support. We simply do not have the funds or the volunteers to develop and implement many of these plans and projects. By responding to this appeal, you will help underwrite the capacity of the ISO to support initiatives that can change lives for many sex addicts. Please consider giving what you can. For many, your gift will be a gift of life.

As we close 2015, the ISO of SAA wishes to express its gratitude for the many financial gifts it has received and for the many hours given by members in service to the fellowship. Enclosed is a fact sheet that will give you an idea of the scope of ISO outreach activities handled though the ISO office. We ask for your financial contributions today to help us expand our reach to many, many more. Please be generous with your gifts.

With best wishes for your recovery,
Joe H.
Executive Director, ISO of SAA
On behalf of the ISO Board of Trustees
