BAsics for Prisoners:
GIVE THE GIFT THAT GIVES!
The Prisoners Revolutionary Literature Fund has received an additional $1,000, enough funds for 800 copies of BAsics for prisoners, of which 700 have already been mailed. Thanks to the generosity of people who have stretched to give—from $5 to $500—PRLF is advancing towards our goal of 2,000 BAsics to prisoners. $10 sends one copy of BAsics to a prisoner, including shipping. $12,000 will meet the goal of filling requests for 1,200 more copies.
Donate now to get BAsics to women prisoners. PRLF has a goal of reaching out to women prisoners who are not yet aware of the unique literature PRLF offers, and sending BAsics to at least 200 of the women who respond. $2,000 will cover those 200 books. Your generous contribution will make this happen.
One recent donor, a young man whose father is in prison, explains why he gave to PRLF:
“I’ve recently made a donation of $100 towards one of your campaigns. I made this contribution because I see the necessity of helping these inmates change and be transformed. Not just for the betterment of themselves but for the message it will show us in society that even under these horrendous conditions, people haven’t lost their humanity and can change for a greater cause than one’s own individual gain. And I thank the PRLF for not losing that insight and staying strong and focused on educating and transforming these inmates. I will continue to contribute every chance I get, because these are our brothers and sisters in there, and they should never be cast off. In solidarity with the inmates and all positive social movements for the betterment of humanity.”
