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.
All D.A. members are welcome to attend. Members interested in sponsorship as a path to spiritual growth and growth of the fellowship are especially welcome.
To celebrate the path to recovery in D.A. Tool 3:

The membership of Debtors Anonymous is wide-ranging. Our goal is to share member stories from around the world that illustrate the broad range of recovery experiences found in D.A.
Our hope is that the stories will reflect the rich variety of recovery found through working the Twelve Steps and applying the program tools.
The call will:
- celebrate the diversity that already exists in D.A.
- encourage members to share their unique recovery experiences.
- provide a forum for members to share their experience, strength, and hope regarding our common solution.
There will be four speakers (sharing for 10 minutes each), followed by 20 minutes of open sharing, and 20 minutes of Q&A.
All D.A. members worldwide are invited to participate.
Join us to hear the variety of recovery stories found in D.A.
Presented by the World Service Conference Diversity Caucus in cooperation with the World Service Conference International Caucus and the General Service Board Public Information and International Committees, to enable the broadest global participation.
The mission of the Diversity Caucus is to support the Fellowship in carrying the message of Debtors Anonymous to the debtor in underserved populations and locations. We coordinate with all World Service Conference committees by developing best practices for doing service and sharing it with D.A. as a whole.
