Last chance to contribute to our $2,500 matching campaign!

December 2015  |  Published in Latest News

volunteering22As the year winds to an end, we’re getting close to reaching goal on our $2,500 matching campaign – but we still need your help!

As we mentioned before, two donors have stepped up to provide matching for the next $2,500 of donations from the public! This generous offer will allow us to continue catching up on our backlog of requests for books we send to needy U.S. prisoners.

We currently spend over $2,000 per month on postage — so every dollar counts! Over the last few months, we’ve ramped up our book-sending, after getting as far as 4 months behind on answering letters, and we’re pleased to announce that we’re now less than one month behind on answering letters – our best ever! But now we really need that extra money for postage.

We’ve already reached more than half of our $2,500 goal, with even more incoming, thanks to some valued contributors. So we’re asking, before this matching runs out at end of year –  donate via PayPal or credit card to help us get these books out asap!

As previously noted, we’re hoping we can find more people willing to contribute $5-$10 a month or more, since recurring payments really help us, given we have new letters to answer every week. But one-off donations to get us to the $2,500 are particularly appreciated at this time. Thanks for listening!
