I probably own five Bibles for myself, and I buy them regularly for friends and family . . . and prisoners. So, I finally came up with this brilliant idea to do a fundraiser to support my habit!
You see, I recently sent a Bible to a prisoner who resides in the same prison where my father is currently incarcerated. I found a decently-priced Bible, with a "leather-like" cover, and engraved his name on the front in "gold." This prisoner is a Cheyenne Native American, and I'd sent him a copy of my book WALKS ALONE. He read it and loved it so much, he "adopted" me into his family, and gave me a Cheyenne name: Falling Star. Anyway, I was so tickled, I sent him the Bible I described above and told him God wanted him to read it. :-) He loved it so much, and the other prisoners loved it too! They all wanted one! Well, I can't afford to get so many nice Bibles for all of them. But I thought this fundraiser might help.
I'm familiar with all the strict rules at this particular prison, and I'd have to send a soft-cover Bible to each prisoner individually. My dad gave me a list of names and inmate numbers, and now I'm trying to raise funds to do it.
