Greeting Cards For Those In Prison

--by virgtom08, posted Mar 3, 2016

I send a variety of greeting cards to a niece who is in prison so she can re-use them for her friends inside and outside. I write her name, a few words and then my name in small letters on the edge of the card so it passes inspection in the mail room. She can cut that off and use the card again. I buy cards in bulk (Current) and go to the dollar store. She so appreciates this as cards are expensive to buy. I also include articles, jokes, or pictures each time for her. She often shares these with her 'roommates'. She keeps the pictures of the ones she really likes. She can do a drawing or write something more on either or both sides of the other half if she wants to.

We are meant to be reforming them and returning them to society better happier people................I hope The Universe finds a way soon. I love the idea of them receiving joke cards though that would certainly lift anyone. x
