One of the men we've been sending books to has created a library within his prison. With all the books we've sent him over the years, combined See More

THE STORY:

I decided to be pen-pals with an inmate. Then 2. Now 5. Here's the weird part about prisoners: they're normal people. And like any normal person, they go stir-crazy with nothing to do or read. 

My penpals have from three more years to life left. They're smart, thoughtful men who I strongly believe deserve to have something to read. Even if you don't agree, research consistently says that access to books increases the likelyhood that these men stay mentally healthy and rejoin society successfully when they're released. Your book donation can help heal the futures for these men and the families they go home to. That is no small thing.

I don't mean to brag, but I earn very little money, so this would be extremely hard for me to do on my own. Thank you so much for any help!
