Dear Recovering Gamers and Anons,
We are asking for your help!
Today, many are realizing they need to get help and support so they can leave the games. When they come to our website, they know that they are not alone. They find that many have come before them, and shared their stories and struggles when they moved from a social gamer to an addicted gamer. They also share the experience, strength and hope of their recovery, in the gamer forums.
We also have the "Anon" stories from the friends and families of excessive gamers, who are looking for support and help. It's like a recovery meeting on the web, that you can come to whenever you like, and stay for as little or long as you like.
We provide a hot-line, to answer questions, and support those in need.
On-Line Gamers Anonymous needs money to keep going. Without your donations, we would not be here.
We do not levy membership fees, and our fund-raising is pretty low key (our last fund-raising drive was in the spring of 2014). We like it that way and we hope you do too. The result is that very little comes in month-to-month. This is why we have chosen a campaign as the way raise the funds our organization so desperately needs.
If you believe in Olganon.org, if you feel that membership in our site has helped you and/or your family members, now is the time for you to express this belief by giving.
Please give what you are able. Give a little or give a lot. What is important is that you do give. Our bank account is getting the “Low Balance Alert!!”
Please go to: http://www.olganon.org/donate now!
