In keeping with the Seventh Tradition of self-support, letters of appeal for individual contributions are sent to Al-Anon members in the United States and Canada quarterly in February, May, August, and November.
Since it is not possible to maintain a list of all members of Al-Anon, the appeal letters are mailed to the groups’ address of record. It is requested that the letter be read at two successive meetings followed by a special collection other than the regular group collection. This gives each member an opportunity to participate in Twelfth Step work beyond the group level. The November appeal is extended to members of groups worldwide.
