Redfern Now

As part of Area G's summer public information campaign, the PI committee has booked billboard and cinema advertising space for the month of January. A wonderful way to show those in need that we are here for the alcoholic who still suffers.

June 10, Founders Day and the brown paper bag week.

On June 10, 1935, Bill Wilson and his friend Dr. Bob Smith set out to find the best way to treat fellow alcoholics, and Alcoholics Anonymous was born.

You and your group can help carry the message of our life saving fellowship by donating to the International Sponsorship Fund. Each year, the Fellowship distributes the Founders Day brown paper bags to collect money to help carry the message to the still suffering alcoholics in countries in Asia and the Pacific (AOSM Zone). 25% of the collection is sent to World Service Office in New York to help defray the cost of translating literature in countries where English is not their first language. The collection is traditionally is held during the week that Founders Day (June 10) falls in .

Facebook Advertising

Area G has started a Facebook Ad campaign - a series of 6 pictorial ads that are linked to send the clickee to the AA meetings website. The ads only charge a fee when clicked on.

The Facebook ad account is anonymous and has been tested in Melbourne with successful additional awareness, particularly with younger problem drinkers over the summer period.

23/12/16 UPDATE - 27,000 PEOPLE HAVE SEEN THESE ADS ON FACEBOOK WITH JUST OVER 100 CLICKS TO THE AA WEBSITE.

The cost to the fellowship? $142. Great work Ryan T and other Area G trusted servants.
