Students from the Dynamic DIVA Dawgs and Bulldog Bros at Burnet Middle School chose Women’s Storybook Project as their philanthropy project for the 2018-2019 school year. They learned about our work, raised money, collected new books and even volunteered at the Barnes and Noble Holiday Book Drive. Their impact was tremendous! All in all, these students donated $1,000 and over 50 books to WSP. Would your school, civic group, book club or home school group like to hold a book or fund drive? Please contact us to learn more!

I love the books and I want to read more! I enjoy it very much. Thank you for bringing me and my mom closer together. When are the next books coming?
Freethink, an internet news organization, made a video showing how mothers connect with their children through reading. One mom states, “I love her, I’m never going to stop loving her - no matter what happens - and I want her to know that.” The simple sharing of a storybook can have a big impact on a family dealing with parental incarceration.
“I want to personally thank you for this program. It means so much to me and my children. For them to hear Mommy reading to them again, to be able to encourage them to keep reading, and to hear them tell me about their books is so amazing.” Alecia
At Women’s Storybook Project, we help incarcerated mothers record stories and messages for their children. For many families, these stories help to strengthen and heal damaged relationships and build hope for the future. By participating in this program, mothers can show their children that they are loved and missed.
