New Ways To Donate

‘Save the USPS’ T-shirt benefiting PLP!

Great news – this awesome ‘save the USPS’ T-shirt from IWantMyHoneyTV is available for a limited time only here: https://iwantmyhoney.tv.

All proceeds will go to buying U.S. Postal Service stamps to send books to prisoners via the PLP!

(Thanks so much to the IWantHoney.TV crew for getting us involved. We’re a massive fan of the USPS, since we rely on them so much to get books to prisoners!)
