Our program replies to more than 1,500 letters a year. Yet there are still hundreds and hundreds of letters in our backlog that we struggle to reply to in a timely manner. This deficit will never diminish until injustices in our prison system are addressed on a national level. Until that time, we are doing our best to provide a small amount of relief to those we are able to reach, and your contributions make that possible.
The options below represent the impact of your generous contributions on our program and those we serve.
The handling and postage for a single package of 1-3 paperback books is approximately $3-6.
The handling and postage for five packages of 1-3 paperback books each is approximately $15-30.
Five paperback college dictionaries, American Heritage or similar with 70,000 definitions or more.
Study guides for high school aptitude tests vary widely in price, costing anywhere from $50 each for the HiSET and $20 each for the GED. Help a prisoner continue their education!
That averages out to $150 in postage costs every week, and $8,000 in postage every year.
Your donations help alleviate our growing postage costs and allow us to purchase the educational materials and supplies necessary to keep our program running.
