As the year comes to a close, we want to take a moment to thank each and everyone of you for your support of Women’s Storybook Project. We could not serve children of incarcerated mothers without your commitment and time! Because of you, WSP can continue its mission of connecting children with their moms through the joy of literature. We need your help to continue this simple idea that makes such a big impact. More than 2.5 million children have a parent in prison—that is one in every 28 children in the U.S. The number of incarcerated women continues to grow; in Texas, more than 14,000 women are incarcerated.For more than a decade, Women’s Storybook Project has continued to connect incarcerated mothers with their children through reading/recording books. Here is what you helped WSP accomplish last year:
1,242 mothers recorded stories for their children
2,346 books and recordings were sent to children
6 prison units allowed WSP to work with incarcerated moms (3 new prisons were added this year) to provide recordings to their children
22 states in the U.S. received mail from Texas—although WSP only operates in Texas, the children live all over the country
6,328 volunteer hours were logged to operate this program
Please make your gift today!
There’s only one day left in 2016, and it’s your last chance to make a tax-deductible donation to WSP this year. If you’ve already donated, THANK YOU! If you haven’t, you can donate now and change lives for the New Year and beyond.
