Web Exclusive: Get The Word Out
A service-loving member has a unique plan to reach out the hand of AA.
"My latest brainstorm is to get the signs into liquor stores. This isn’t as crazy as it sounds."
“AA Intergroup, this is Kenneth, how may I help you?”
“What I want to know is why I have to go to Florida and pay $500 before you can help me!”
“What are you talking about, man?” I said to the caller. “This is AA. It’s free if you want it. I’m a volunteer answering the phone. I don’t want your money!”
“Well I just called your 800 number and they told me I had to make a $500 down payment and get an assessment at your center in Florida!”
“I don’t know who you called buddy, but it was not Alcoholics Anonymous!”
