Chistmas Request

The Miracles In Progress Recovery House in Wilmington, NC has eight men living in it who are in the early stages of recovery from alcoholism and/or addiction.  They do not appear to have family or friends from which to gain healthy holiday wishes.  As we all know, the holidays can be a hard time for all of us, whether we are the alcoholic/addict in early recovery, a family member of one, or were raised by one in childhood.

These eight men have no idea how big the Miracles In Progress family of recovery is, and I'm asking that you take a few minutes and a 37 cent stamp to show them.  Please consider sending these men a Christmas Card this year.  This is all I am asking you to think about doing to help lift up their Christmas spirits and show them that they are not alone on the road of recovery.  You do not need to reveal any personal information to them about yourself that you don't want to.  All I ask is that you consider signing it "Your brother/sister in Recovery, Another Miracle In Progress"....

Here are their first names and last initials and mailing address;

Adam L.
Eddie C.
Jimmy T.
Luther V.
Tracy L.
Jason B.
Blake T.
Greg P.

141 Hinton Ave
Wilmington, NC 28403

Send each individual a card or send one card to them as a group, its your choice, either would be greatly appreciated and put a big smile on their faces this holiday season.  Let's try to work together to bring them a sense of what the recovery family spirit is about.

Your participation in this endeavor is needed, valued and appreciated.

Hi John,

I got this request in my email as I also belong to Alanon in your online group under a different name to be able to deal with my husbands alcoholism.  I sent my card yesterday when I got the email.

Its such a fantastic idea and i did post the request also on some other support groups I I am hoping you get a good response with this.
