“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
― Nelson Mandela
I came across this organization in Madison that will take book donations and distribute them to inmates. I think this is a wonderful program and wished to share it with you in the hopes that you would consider this as the next recipient of your book donations. When I called to be sure the program was still in operation, they also mentioned a LGBT Books to Prisoners program as well.
They accept donations at the following locations and you can read more about the program on the web: http://rainbowbookstore.coop/b2p
