As someone who's not always in the loop about prison news and advocacy, I really appreciate you posting these various news articles as your blog posts. It helps me turn an eye to what is often not stated by major media. Opens my view.

More importantly, it helps me determine which nonprofits I will donate to when I can. What actions I can take, even if I don't live in these states.

Thank you so much for sharing. Wishing you a wonderful day.

P.S. Random questions (or a blog post idea if you wish to make it so): Do you have a favorite time of day? What makes it so special to you?

We will print and mail your reply by . Guidelines
