My name is AJ, I received your letter and I am very interested in the program you provide. The only question that I have, how you know about me…other than that, yes I want to be a part of the program. I have a lot to say, I write poetry about different things don’t mind putting it out there to be seen. I am not really sure what to do next. I would appreciate a response what kind of stories are you looking for, if you please give me some type of clue of how the program works I will gladly send some poetry to you guys. thank you.”
Wow! Right when I was re-strategizing, I get this letter. This gives me hope that I can change someones life.
The LET PROJECT
Well I’ve been thinking about trying a new project. Despite the support of sending my incarcerated cousin multiple books, I still haven’t received a response. Come to find out, that is extremely rare. I am not offended or anything, in fact I am even more inspired to reach out to random inmates who are in desperate need of a pen pal. I will explain the purpose of the letter and my intentions of writing them. My goal is to change a few inmates lives for the better by sending books, and letters of inspiration. I will open a p.o. box and get started in a couple of weeks. I really want to change people’s lives for the better. In life we have roads that we are on that may seem gloomy, but the right book or letter of encouragement may change an inmates life. I plan to give a name to the project and blog, then upload the stories. I might do it, or I may not. But I think this would make interesting content for a blog. What do you guys think?
