Donation

Every now and then someone in prison sends APBP a donation. Usually this comes in the form of 5 or 10 dollars. The other day we received a check for $150.00 from a man incarcerated in Pound VA. He thanked us for a Ralph Compton book that we had sent and said he wanted to make a “small donation” to our educational outreach project. “I’ll be 70 years old in December and reading is one of the real pleasures I get out of life.” He also offered to send back to APBP the books that we send to him after he has read them. That way “you can send them back out … I look forward to reading the varied subjects you send me.”
