ABOUT CONTRIBUTION

[About contribution]

After calling to the conscience of A.A. groups throughout the country, the committee have decided that, the cost of our convention should be covered by the contribution from A.A. groups. We would like to ask A.A. groups in Japan to cooperate with us through money contribution. We appreciate your kind support.

(This request is only for A.A. groups and members. We cannot accept the contribution from other institutions or individuals outside of A.A. fellowship. Thank you for your understanding.)

 

[Preamble]

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self- supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
