Got some paperback books you aren't interested in keeping? They might be suitable for donating to the Books to Women in Prison Project. A handful of women created this organization when they realized how minimal the educational opportunities are for women in prison. Believing that prison is supposed to help women rehabilitate themselves, and finding it difficult for that to happen without education, they created this project that collects donated paperback books and sends them off to Illinois women's prisons. $10 lets them send of 4 packages of donated books, so every little bit helps. Imagine how disappointing your life would be without access to books. Personally, I think I'd go crazy.
