Dear DA members,
We are carrying on our tradition of ‘One member, one action’ for the month of April. If every member took just one action, imagine the impact it would have on carrying the DA message to the debtor who still suffer. Could you call a newcomer, sponsor a member or….
- Find Materials
DA Posters & awareness cards (business cards with DA info) available from meeting PI rep, Literature rep & Intergroup Literature Rep
OR Poster available to download and print from DA website http://debtorsanonymous.org.uk/carrying-the-message (you can modify with your meeting details if you wish)
- Plan where to go
Start local – near your meeting venue, even a noticeboard at the meeting venue. Other places near your meeting – shops, newsagent, doctor’s surgeries etc. (see list below)
- Think about what you’ll say
Keep it short and simple! Have your ‘pitch’ ready – something you’re comfortable with. We found something like this worked well:
“I’m from a local support group that helps people who have debt and problems with money, it’s really helped me and we want to let people know where to find us.”
- Go to the venues and ask them
It’s best to ask first – some locations might have a policy about what can be on view in their premises. They may let you know where you can put things up.
Where to spread the word?
Here are some ideas from DA fellows of places we could spread the word – putting up a poster or having a conversation about DA:
More ideas available on DA website here http://debtorsanonymous.org.uk/carrying-the-message. The fellowship wants to hear from you, if you/your group need help with this or you want to share what your one action email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for carrying the message.
