Year-end gifts important to HFP!

IT’S TIME TO THINK ABOUT END-OF-THE-YEAR GIVING!


Five years ago Maurice Carter died, after serving 29 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. HUMANITY FOR PRISONERS was Maurice’s dream. He didn’t want another prisoner to suffer his nightmare of wrongful conviction and inadequate healthcare. Without Maurice our organization wouldn’t exist.

I recently read “When praying, don’t give God instructions … just report for duty!”

Well, that’s been our response here, and we thought you’d like to see the results.

As you consider which organizations deserve your year-end attention, take a look at the back of this letter. No question about it, thanks to YOU, HFP has made an impact! And, on a shoestring budget!

All organizations have impressive statistics. Our numbers are different: They wear faces! , For 5 years we’ve stayed true to our purpose of reaching out with compassion and helping to transform the lives of lonely and forgotten prisoners. And our work, unlike that of huge projects, is on the personal level: ONE ON ONE!

YOUR YEAR-END GIFT WILL KEEP US GOING RIGHT INTO THE PRISONS!


AND…CHRISTMAS GIVING!


SWEET FREEDOM

What better way to tell the prison story, what better gift for a dear friend, than my actual first-person account of the Maurice Carter saga in this fascinating book!

Here’s how we’ll work it:

YOU 1. Send us the name and address of the recipient
2. Send HFP a contribution of $20 or more

I 1. Will personally sign the book
2. Will ship the book, as a gift from you, to the recipient

Thanks to your loyal support, we’ll have another year of making a difference!
