The new key tags were unveiled at the 2012 World Conference.
Medallions or Key tags
The PA World Conference has decided to proceed with releasing key chains for sobriety time. Medallions will come later. The main reason was cost. Each Die for medallions will cost between $400 and $800. Key tag set-up will be only $40 to $80; also minimum runs are smaller for key chains.
Even by going with key tags the up front costs are surprising, initial estimates are around $3500 for the first year, (newcomer, 30 day, 60 day, 90 day, 6 month 9 month, and a year) additional $5000 for each 10 years after that.
The reason for saying that is we need help from our members. Last year 7th Tradition contributions were just over twelve hundred dollars; yes one thousand two hundred dollars. We need some individual members to step forward and give up to the maximum of three thousand dollars either as a lump sum or as a monthly donation of $250.
Of course like all 7th Tradition contributions your gift will be completely anonymous, as it should be. Also like all 7th Tradition contributions, you need to be a member of PA (have a desire to stop using pills), you can’t tell us how to use it either, there can’t be any strings attached, this is the spirit of the 7th Tradition.
Thank you for your consideration.
