As we close the year I would like to remind readers of our matching grant fundraiser where donations will be matched, dollar for dollar from non prisoners, and two dollars for every dollar donated from prisoners. The maximum amount being donated is $25,000.00. As of the first of December, we have raised $5,863.76, for a matching grant total of $8,477.52. The period to raise the full grant amount ends on January 15, 2005. If you have not yet donated, please do so now.
To encourage donations we are offering free books to show our appreciation. The list of titles available is on page 43. The book premiums can be sent to other people as gifts in the event the donor is not interested in the titles being offered. All donations to PLN are tax deductible to those who pay taxes.
Still looking for the perfect holiday gift? Consider a gift subscription to PLN or the books PLN distributes. You can help support PLN and also raise awareness around criminal justice issues at the same time. With our Subscription Madness campaign we pass on the savings of doing mass sample mailings to enable readers to give gift subscriptions of PLN to opinion makers, legislators, activists, libraries, friends and family members who will benefit from our news coverage.
Seattle real estate agent Michael Gross has generously offered to donate half of his real estate agent commission to PLN to anyone who uses his services buying or selling a house in the Seattle area. Our classified ad section has Michael's contact information. Please mention PLN when responding to his ad as well as all advertisers as it lets them know that their ads in PLN get results.
Everyone at PLN would like to wish our readers and supporters a happy holiday season and best wishes for a new year of greater struggle.
