AA/NA Donations

  • anonymous Asks ...

    Do I have to put money in the pot at AA meetings? If I don’t have money I don’t go because I am ashamed.

    Thank you for your question. Please do not miss a meeting because you don't have money to donate! It is only a donation not a requirement. Believe me, everyone understands not everyone can afford to donate each time they go to a meeting. It is not something to be ashamed of. Meetings are free. If you keep going to them, your life will improve. When it does and you can afford to donate later, do it then. Until then, get the most you can from each meeting and forget about the basket. I wish you good luck and I hope you will continue to attend meetings.
