Xmas Cards – meaningless ritual? Not ones sent to prisoners
The thing about prisoners is, there are more than you can write to in a single evening. You should find the ones that you can relate to and keep at it. There are many lists, one of the most comprehensive is at NYC ABC, but information is scattered all over the place and arguably the least-known prisoners are the most in support. Use personal contacts you might have to find out who needs help, we spoke to friends to get a list of refugees in detention, but for a start, a first hand through the bars, download those files above and send a card this Xmas. Even if only one.
Chances are it’ll be the most appreciated gift you send this year. And it’ll cost you less than £1. Beat that Secret Santa.
