My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Books To Prisoners, Seattle, WA, USA
I've worked with this organization for 8 years, and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Books to Prisoners is made up of a small group of passionate, humble, dedicated people who want to provide access to reading materials for people who are incarcerated and they manage to help more than 10,000 people every year with only one staff person.
I encourage everyone who is interested in learning about the impact of incarceration and providing solidarity with incarcerated people to volunteer some time with this wonderful organization. Help to answer a few of the thousands of letters that Books to Prisoners receives each year; you may walk away with a new perspective and as much of a passion for advocating for this cause as those experiences developed in me.
Please also consider a donation to help make this work possible: Books to Prisoners is a scrappy, grassroots organization and every dollar makes a huge difference. Just $25 will provide packages of books to 6 more people.
If it hasn't been made clear already, to me, this is a genuinely great nonprofit and it deserves so much more recognition and support from the community for its impact.
