Prisoners Literature Project

Thanks to Cengage & Storybundle for kind donations!

cengagestoryThe Prisoners Literature Project would like to thank two companies for their donations to the PLP over the last few weeks.

Cengage Learning was kind enough to donate a large amount of textbooks and other educational material to the PLP recently. Thanks so much, Cengage – your generous donation will help us get lots more much-needed educational books out to prisoners across the United States.

– As we recently mentioned, the ‘pay what you want’ eBook website Storybundle was running a game-themed bundle, which recently ended, & we’re delighted to announce that it raised over $2,100 for the Prisoners Literature Project.

Both donors continue to help us move towards our yearly goals of around 10,000 packages (and 30,000+ books!) sent out to needy U.S. prisoners – don’t forget to volunteer or donate to help us keep making those lofty goals!

We use your kindly donated money for postage for the 1000+ book packages we send to prisoners monthly. But the PLP has also been making strides in buying (discounted!) requested books.
