"The AA Grapevine ‘Keep-It-Simple’ Challenge
The AA Grapevine, Inc. is totally self-supporting and does not receive AA group contributions or income from advertising or membership fees.
Grapevine publications are financed entirely by the sales of the Grapevine magazine, AudioGrapevine, Digital Archive and other related books and CDs.
The magazines and all other items are never priced to earn a profit, but to cover basic operating expenses and to cover escalating fixed costs (such as postal increases of 40% over a 10-year period).
A Little Can Mean A Lot
100 new Grapevine magazine and/or AudioGrapevine subscriptions per area can assure that the AA Grapevine, Inc. is fully self-supporting in 2007.
What You Can Do to Help
If the Grapevine makes a difference in your sobriety, then please pass the word on by encouraging your area to increase its circulation this year by at least 100 subscriptions (that’s 7/10ths of one percent of our estimated 1.3 million members).
Please get the word out about this challenge by:
• Announcing it at your home group, area assemblies, wherever you find AAs members and/or by
• Posting this page in your newsletter, on your website, or at your local InterGroup or Central office.
It’s that simple.
We will keep you posted of the results of the ‘Keep-It-Simple’ challenge at www.aagrapevine.org
beginning October 2007.
