The International Christian Recovery Coalition (www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com) was founded about two years ago. Its headquarters office is in Kihei, Hawaii; and its Southern California office is at New Life Spirit Recovery, Inc., in Huntington Beach, California.
2010 marked a fact gathering, Coalition growing, an Introductory Foundations for Christian Recovery Class (www.dickb.com/IFCR-Class.shtml) and a revision and publication of The Dick B. Christian Recovery Guide, 3rd ed, 2010 (www.dickb.com/Christian-Recov-Guide.shtml), plus extensive conferences, speaking engagements, meetings, and individual talks.
2011 marked several huge projects enabled by the continued growing strength of the Christian Recovery Coalition and some powerful spokespeople that have emerged - fully qualified to talk on our Mission and on the history of the Christian recovery movement.
The maor first quarter projects for 2011 are, and continue to be:

Huge free distribution (at cost of shipping only), via media mail of 350 cases of brand
new Dick B.'s leading A.A. History Books. Each case, or more cases, can be obtained free by those who provide a shipping donation of $30.00 per case, for as many cases as desired. Recipients are free to use each case to distribute books free individually, to distribute cases free to groups or fellowships or recovery programs, to provide books free to study groups, to lodge books free in archives and churches and centers, to raise funds for their respective Christian recovery outreach projects, and for meetings and conferences.
This free distribution project begins today, February 9th; and those that want to be sure of obtaining cases will need to complete their requests by the end of the quarter on March 31st.
Those desiring cases need only start the process by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; phoning Dick B. at 808 276 4945; or writing to Dick B., PO Box 837, Kihei, HI 96753.
Once these 350 cases are gone, that will be the end of this free distribution project. So make your offer as early as possible.
