2021 Carry The Message Project

Want To Help Another Alcoholic? Grapevine and La Viña are Great Twelfth Step Tools!
3 Easy Ways!

 

1. If you know the full name and the mailing address of the recipient:

Give a Gift Subscription to a friend, a sponsee, doctor’s offices, or for giveaways at anniversaries or events at your homegroup, district, or area level.

Follow these steps:

  • Go to store.aagrapevine.org.
  • Click on the Gift Subscriptions box.
  • Click on the Red Gift Bag icon for the type of gift subscription you want to give.
  • Click on “Go to the products page.”
  • Click on the number of Gift subscriptions you want to purchase (1 gift or 2).
  • Enter your information, the recipient’s information, and your payment information.
  • Click on the Process Order button. You’re done!

Note: The first renewal notices will be sent to you and if there is no response, the last ones will be sent to the recipient.

 

2. If you do not know the full name and the mailing address of the recipient and want Grapevine to select an alcoholic in need from the requests we have received.

Give a Carry the Message Gift Certificate to someone you do not know (such as an alcoholic in prison.)

Follow these steps:

  • Go to store.aagrapevine.org.
  • Click on the Gift Certificate box.
  • Click the Buy button of the appropriate Carry the Message Gift Certificate option and you will be taken to a page showing our quantity discounts (at the bottom).
  • Enter the number of gift certificates that you want and click the Buy button. (For multiple gift certificates, the discount will automatically be applied).
  • Click Checkout and enter your order and payment information.
  • When you click the Confirm button, you will get an order confirmation email and the gift certificate will be sent to you as an individual email.
  • Forward the gift certificate to Sonia Dominguez at sdominguez@aagrapevine.org and we will redeem it for someone who has requested a subscription but can’t afford one. (If you have purchased multiple gift certificates, select all of them and use the Forward as Attachment option, so you only have to send us one email).

Note: Your information will not be connected to the subscription record and all renewal notices will be sent directly to the recipient.

 

3. If you do not know the full name and the mailing address of the recipient and would like to give them a gift certificate for them to redeem themselves for a subscription (example: A newcomer in your group.) 

Give a Carry the Message Gift Certificate to a newcomer or someone in your group. 

Follow these steps:

  • Go to store.aagrapevine.org.
  • Click on the Gift Certificate box.
  • Click the Buy button of the appropriate Carry the Message Gift Certificate option and you will be taken to a page showing our quantity discounts (at the bottom).
  • Enter the number of gift certificates that you want and click the Buy button. (For multiple gift certificates, the discount will automatically be applied).
  • Click Checkout and enter your order and payment information.
  • When you click the Confirm button, you will get an order confirmation email and the gift certificate will be sent to you as an individual email.
  • Print and hand the Gift Certificate or email the Gift Certificate to the individual(s) you wish to donate a subscription to and they will be able to redeem the gift certificate code and enter their information themselves on the store: store.aagrapevine.org/to-redeem-your-gift-certificate.
