#GivingTuesday Isn’t Over

Today is #GivingTuesday and we’ve been promoting the purchase of the new 2017 GED review book. Whether you’re reading this at the end of the day or you’ve come across our page some time later, you can be sure that we can always need more GED review books.

Women tell us often how important it is that we’re able to provide this book. Many prisons offer classes or testing, but they don’t provide books—and not everyone even gets into a class. See what a few women told us:

givingtuesday-ged1
givingtuesday-ged2
givingtuesday-ged3

Need more reasons? About 68% of people incarcerated in state prisons did not have a high school diploma on entering prison, and 26% of people in prison earn a GED while there. Earning a GED brings hope and can lead to more opportunities. When a woman in prison earns her GED, it doesn’t just help her, it helps her family and her community.

Please buy a 2017 GED review book or two from our Amazon wish list. (Also feel free, of course, to purchase from another bookstore.)

Thank you for your support!
