Committed to Support

1 min read

Being ready to support OA financially is important. I do give at every meeting I go to, and last year I set up an ARC: Automatic Recurring Contribution. I set it for US$10 per month, charged to my credit card. I don’t miss the money, and I know it’s helping support OA as a whole. Putting money in the basket at a meeting is a commitment to the organization as a whole as well as a contribution to the individual meeting. If I could not afford a few dollars, I would still be welcome. But I can afford it, so if do not give, I am not fulfilling my commitment. My commitment is between me and my HP. It is important for me to support OA because OA is here for me; my HP leads me to support OA to keep the organization strong.
