Prisoners Literature Project

Thanks for #GivingTuesday, keep PLP in mind at year-end!

December 2017  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

We just wanted to thank everybody for your amazing response to our GivingTuesday campaign – we met our matching goal, thanks to you all!

 

We’re really appreciate your generosity, and we’re forging on towards the end of the year now, so we hope to see some of you at our holiday party on December 17th.

And if you can’t make it – or even if you can – and you’re thinking about giving before the end of the year for holiday (or tax deduction!) reasons, please consider the PLP – we’d appreciate it!
