Greetings to you all for the New year. I am pleased to report there is a huge hype and portfolio holders are in readiness to take 2020 forward. Over the last 18 months, members of this committee gave more than 100% off themselves to the planning process. Their passion and commitment was outstanding. A special thank you to all other members that joined in. We are quite relaxed right now as a lot of the important work has already been done. Our finances are looking good and fundraising has come to an end. There is just 3 MONTHS TO GO and approximately another 3 to 4 meetings left, so I urge you to make every effort to be a good host as this is YOUR Convention…. Vilo S (Convention Chair)
COME JOIN US AT CONVENTION 2020

AL-ANON… There is no standing still
Your contributions to Al-Anon Family Groups, whether you are at a meeting, Rally, or other events, are essential to the operation of our Area office. These funds go towards your own meeting’s rent, teas, etc. Our Area office would have closed long ago except for your valuable contributions. These funds pay the office rent (we have the smallest office we could find), running expenses, and literature. These funds keep our office open 3 days a week so we can provide help and support not only to existing groups, but to those who need our strength and hope.
On our website – www.alanongauteng.co.za – you’ll find a QR code that enables you to make a donation using SnapScan on your phone. (or you can scan this one)
SnapScan (one of the most secure and easy payment systems in ZA) has recently launched a new feature that gives people the option of repeating their donations, turning them into monthly, ongoing payments of any amount.
Al-Anon G&D has activated this feature on SnapScan, and allows you to do either single or repeat transactions. Download it on your phone now from the Playstore – and you are all set! We also have it at all our Rallies for literature & other sales.
When you scan our QR code, you will be given the option to do a repeat payment. Do it once a month & then you don’t have to remember.
We hope you will take full advantage of this, as your support is invaluable to keeping our office open, provide Groups with literature, and help for those in need.
Every group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.
