We are a 501c3 organization and your donations are tax deductible. With anticipated requests in 2019, our work is only made possible by donors like you. We are 100% volunteer driven and our only significant operational costs are postage and packing materials. It costs, on average, $1.50 to send one book directly to a prisoner in our service area.
