oa-sponsorship-day

Aug 20-22 SPONSORSHIP DAY! Celebrated the third weekend of August, Sponsorship Day is a day set aside to acknowledge the importance of sponsoring in our fellowship. In Overeaters Anonymous, we are told that “together we can do what we could never do alone.” Nowhere is this principle more simply and clearly practiced than in the sponsor-sponsee relationship. Sponsors help us through our program of recovery on all three levels—physical, emotional, and spiritual. By working with others, sponsors continually renew and reaffirm their own recovery.
