"Every OA group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions."
Since 2020, the number of Two-Hour OAHOW Meetings listed on this site has grown from nine weekly meetings to 21, with more in development.
Currently, there are over 5000 visitors to our website on a monthly basis. And the numbers are growing as we expand to other countries.
The challenges of working OA HOW recovery in a virtual world are unique. While most of our meetings are virtual only with no physical location, there are expenses to maintain and grow our fellowship.
Therefore, we continue to need your financial support, and donations are now fully tax deductible.
Please give what you can, when you can.
A life of sane and happy usefulness is what we are promised....
Per our group conscience, the HVIG contributes funds in excess of prudent reserve ($1500) to the Virtual Region and OA World Service in a 60%/40% split.
Here's are just some of the ways your donations support our fellowship:
This website is supported by your generous donations and dedicated volunteers from within our fellowship. The communications committee is looking for volunteers to help with the website updates, the We Care List, Documents and Folders, the Newsletter and more. It takes over 30 volunteers monthly to serve on the HVIG to make it work. We need help, so please consider volunteering to do service and come join the fun and fellowship.
