Sponsoring inmates

Hello all,

I exchange emails regularly with three prisoners and find the experience valuable for all of us. I am proud to call them my friends and hope that in a little way I'm helping them get back on track.

My friends don't ask me for money but I choose to send them the odd $20 on special occasions such as Birthdays and, most recently, Easter. They have told me that the money is used to help speak to their families more and also to purchase art materials which is a hobby for one.

How does my experience compare with others? Do you send money to those you support in prison?

Best wishes all

Stu

Bit different for me, my man is in prison so I support him in there. But you sound a cool, positive pen friend. I did have a bad experience witth a young guy I wrote with..ONLY AS A FRIEND..but he was asking for stuff ALL the time, I sent some stuff, a book, some yarn, art supplies, a few $$ for toilitries but every letter he wanted stuff.. so I cut contact

That’s sweet of you to support your man in prison, Anne Marie!
