FREE MINDS BOOK CLUB & WRITING WORKSHOP
March 16, 2011

I have seen these amazing kids in action. I attended a poetry reading by the Free Minds members and was very touched by the feelings and raw emotions they expressed through their writing. Despite the fact that my life and experiences are so completely different than the lives and experiences of these kids, I was reminded that we all share the same humaness. Happiness, sadness, joy, family, fear, uncertainty, accomplishment are common to us all.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Interacting with the members as they work to change their lives after incarceration; to make successful lives.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make fund raising easier for them. As a small organization time spent raising money is time spent away from the members and their needs.

MY ROLE:
Donor & Atteneded several poetry readings by Free Minds members.
