Dear Central Virginia Intergroup
members (all those who attend OA meetings in Charlottesville, Fredericksburg,
and/or Richmond area) —
We, the board and the committee members
of CVIG, hope that each member will make it a priority to continue their 7th
Tradition donation for each zoom meeting he/she attends.
Many groups have depleted their treasuries to pay their rent in advance and will not have funds to pay their upcoming rent, purchase literature, or make donations to CVIG, Region 7, and World Service.
Each member, group, IG, Region, and
World have the primary purpose to carry the message to the still suffering
compulsive overeater. Without donations,
we will not be able to support our primary purpose, nor support CVIG’s ongoing
expenses for the good of all our groups. (ex.
website-$200, insurance-$500, zoom-$150, P. O. Box-$50) Therefore,
it is vital that we continue to receive your 7th Tradition
Here are some suggestions* for members
and groups to make their donations:
1. Set aside envelopes for each zoom
meeting you attend, marked with the day and time. Insert a 3×5 card in each envelope, marking
that card each time you attend that meeting; keeping track of those donations. Then each zoom meeting could request a
business meeting, and at that time, the treasurer would ask to have your checks
sent to him/her.
2. Same as suggestion 1, but instead of
a 3×5 card, you could put cash in each envelope each week for every zoom
meeting you attend.
3. If you and the treasurer of the
meeting both have PayPal, you could make your donations directly to the
treasurer. Those members without PayPal
could send their donations to the meeting’s treasurer once a business meeting
*All suggestions are based on the zoom
meetings establishing dates for business meetings; dates to be determined by
each groups’ members.
Please help us keep OA strong &
vital…to continue to be there for one another and for the still suffering
compulsive overeater who reaches out to us for help.
