Families for Recovery Foundation
The Foundation needs volunteers to work in their local cities, to do fundraising activities, such as holding art shows, concerts with local musicians, having big yard sales, silent auctions.... etc. etc. We are working hard to try to make a yearly budget to produce more tv shows/videos to help families of alcoholics. Many nursing schools; and recovering people; and people in shelters and in indigent areas are being helped by us, but we need people all over to volunteer to hold annual fundraising events (large OR small) to help raise the funds needed. If you are interested in talking about this, please call Toby Rice Drews in Baltimore, at: (410) 243-8352. Please help!
46% of American families have alcoholism. The Getting Them Sober Foundation's mission is to produce and distribute FREE television programs guiding these families to immediate local help; and to produce and distribute FREE video versions for graduate and professional schools in nursing, medicine, law, and social work -- to teach helping professionals effective methods to aid these families. We will also create and distribute free Spanish versions of these shows for Hispanic communities.
The programs will show the true nature of the crazy-making that happens in alcoholic families -- crazy-making that the rest of the world does not see or understand -- and will provide practical solutions and immediate help for these families. (Of course, no 12-Step tradition will be violated. Anonymity will be respected.)
The Foundation needs your help! We need contributions to help us spread our message. Just think -- more than 100 MILLION AMERICANS need the knowledge this Foundation can provide. Battered children and battered wives, anyone living with the craziness and emotional hurts of family alcoholism, those who have lost their homes because of a partner's untreated addiction to alcohol -- millions suffering daily torments are desperate for help, yet few know where to turn.
The Getting Them Sober Foundation has answers for these sufferers. Your contribution -- whether it is $25 or $25,000 -- will greatly help these families. They need not stay stuck feeling helpless and hopeless. Through the Foundation's programs, men, women, and children everywhere can discover the help available right at home in their own areas, and lives can be turned around and families made whole. PLEASE HELP NOW.
