Review for Books To Prisoners, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

At Books to Prisoners, incarcerated individuals write us letters requesting reading materials. The volunteers take those requests and fulfill them from the donated materials available. What we provide is more than just books, though. It's knowledge, dignity, communication and access to the world.
I read a letter recently in which the man said he has been in prison since 1992. That was the year I was born. He has spent my entire existence locked up. I don't understand that and it breaks my heart. However, I was able to send him books, remind him that people care about him, and make his time in prison (while a pandemic is going on) a little more manageable. That is why this work is so important.
Thank you, Books to Prisoners.
