Write A Prisoner Blog

New Website

Posted on Thu, August 30th 2018
On July 30th, we upgraded the website. There are still quite a few bugs we are working out, and we know a lot of you are waiting on answers and for profiles to be posted. If you wrote us, you will definitely be receiving a reply. If you submitted a new profile for an inmate, we will absolutely be posting it. We are all working seven days a week and still running a little behind. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding while we get this new site situated. We are implementing some exciting new features, and we look forward to sharing details soon. Thank you so...

Please disregard these, as we're getting the actual sections up as fast as we can. One new section is Welcome Home Kits. These are kits that we're donating to ex-offenders on their way home. They're designed to give these people some basic tools to start anew with toiletries, bus schedules, duffel bag, etc., and they will be mailed directly to the prisons. While we're donating these bags ourselves...

Welcome Home Kits: What & How To Send

Posted on Wed, January 3rd 2018
I wanted to walk you guys through what we put together in a typical Welcome Home Kit ( - Welcome Home Kits ).We don't have an exact science down, and we actually do custom tailor these kits in some instances. For example: If we're sending them to an inmate who's being released in December and in a state like New York, we may include a pair of gloves, beanie cap, and chapstick. If they're being released in Florida, we might send sunblock and lip protection. If they don't have decent footwear, we might send shoes. We send these somewhat often, so we're always looking for bulk...
