We delivered over 500 holiday cards to incarcerated youth!

As part of #GivingTuesday, we set out on an ambitious goal: to give a holiday card to every incarcerated youth in the Bay Area. We asked people around the country to mail us handwritten cards answering the question: “when you’re in a hard place, how do you free your mind?”

Over the last month, we received over 500 cards! And because of the generosity of our growing community of supporters, we delivered a holiday card to every incarcerated youth in the Bay Area. Last week, youth in Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, San Mateo, San Francisco, and Marin read heartfelt messages written by those who signed up for #GivingMindfulness.

We’ve included some of our favorites below. Thank you for spreading kindness and brightening the holidays for incarcerated youth!
