One of the things we’re hoping for with this publicity is to attract more volunteers and resources. In that spirit we invite you to contribute to our postage fund, which is our #1 operating cost- we spend about $10,000 on postage each year and can use all the help we can get! (Click the “Get Involved” navigation link to help us out!)

1,193 packages so far in 2020!

In 2019, we sent 5,117 packages—more than 15,300 books and composition books—to women and trans people locked up across the country. (In 2018 we sent 4,852 packages.) Big, big thanks to all our supporters because we couldn’t do it without you. (updated March 15, 2020)
