I am hoping to raise money for "Reach for life beyond bars" project. I was once inmate #30931-177 in Federal Prison. I became aware that there was life outside of incarceration through reading and writing, during my time of solitude.Through the power prayer and Gods mercy and grace, my life was restored. I am wanting to send inspirational books to inmates around the U.S. I feel that the recidivism rate of men/women returning to prison, can be eliminated, through the proper teachings.
