We're raising money for JPay stamps to send encouragement and creative inspiration to students incarcerated at Marion Correctional Institution, the largest source of COVID-19 infection in the U.S.
Wooo-hooo! We've made it to our goal, and have even surpassed it by a bit! Thank you to everyone for your generosity and support.
The project is going strong, AND we have our own domain name and should be fully findable on Google within a few more days. The easier link to the project is now simply lifelinesformci.com. Please visit it often (and share it!) to contribute to the mailings we send in, and to keep up with the responses we receive from inside.
And thank you again for making it all possible!

WOW! Only half a week in, and we're $75 from our original goal ... thank you for your generosity! And our recipients are deeply grateful as well: check out some of their responses in the website's archive (https://lifelinesformci.wixsite.com/lifelines/blog).
This fundraiser felt like a long shot a week ago, but I'm confident now that we will get to $700, which covers the expenses that will take the project through fall with our current mailing list (and we still have room to add a few more recipients!).
Thanks to your show of enthusiasm, we're increasing the goal to try to cover the cost of purchasing a domain name for the website, which will make it easier to find in Google searches. We'll use any remaining funds to start covering costs of JPay stamps for fall!
Thank you again for all of your compassion, positivity, and support!
