Contributions

PLEASE contribute “Give as if your life depended on it!”

Our Seventh Tradition states that: “Every OA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”

Financial contributions help to keep Overeaters Anonymous strong in our area.   Thank you for sending in your contribution to support your Intergroup – Overeaters Anonymous South and East England.

Contributions allow us to do some of the following things in your Intergroup:

  • Maintain the intergroup’s post office space
  • Provide a meeting place for the IG business meetings
  • Provide a telephone line to answer questions for newcomers to OA
  • Provide an IG newsletter to members
  • Undertake Outreach service – providing Professional Outreach and Public Information to make those “outside” aware of our programme
  • Carry out Twelfth Step Within work to carry the message to OA members through workshops, retreats, and OA events
  • Send Representatives to: National Assembly, Region 9 and World Service Business Conference
  • Pass along contributions to other OA levels:
    • OAGB
    • Region 9
    • World Service Office

Thank you for doing your part which allows us all to continue to carry OA’s message of recovery.
