Celebrate #GivingTuesday with a gift!

#GivingTuesday2015

So far this year we’ve mailed 3,000 packages of books and blank journals—already more than last year’s total!—with a month to go in 2015. 

As our reach grows, so does the number of requests for books. Right now more than 500 letters are waiting for a response.

We want to get as many books as possible in the hands of incarcerated women before the end of the year. We have the books, we have the volunteers—we’re limited only by postage costs and our budget. 

Please help on this global day of giving back … or any day. Every $10 donated will allow us to mail three more packages! 

Simply click the PayPal button at the right. Or mail a check to Chicago Books to Women in Prison, 4511 N. Hermitage Ave., Chicago IL 60640.

Thank you on behalf of the women we serve!


4,412 packages so far in 2019

Last year we sent 4,852 packages to women and trans people locked up across the country—nearly 13,500 books and composition books in all. Big thanks to all our supporters because we couldn’t do it without you! (updated November 11, 2019)
