GIVE A DONATION
This program is not not sponsored by any organization, but rather it is funded by individuals donations to 2nd Chance Books. Donations allow us to purchase books, packaging supplies, office supplies, prayer rugs, postage, etc. This is an ongoing program with continued growth. We are continuously receiving more and more letters from prisoners each month expressing to us their desire for learning about the Holy Prophet and his Household (as). They do not have the ability to access the information they need to learn and have no funds, so they are depending on us to aid and assist them to learn about Islam.
We wish to convey the importance of helping a fellow believer who is less fortunate than ourselves and to remember that our beloved Imam Ali (as) is reported to have said through a beautiful narration:
"Do not feel ashamed if the amount of charity is small because to refuse the needy is an act of greater shame"
"To render relief to the distressed and to help the oppressed make amends for great sins."
We would also like to mention that 2nd Chance Books is a registered nonprofit within the United States and that your donation is tax deductible.
We are always in need of new or used books in fair condition. It would be great to have Quran's and books on beliefs, ethics, morality and family structure in Islam. They can use these books as a tool for self-development and to reform themselves and also their friends, loved ones and communities upon their release. If you are able to contribute any of these three things then please mail them to us at our address listed at the bottom of the page.
DONATE PRAYER RUGS
Prisoners are always requesting prayer rugs, tasbih and turbah. If you are able to contribute any of these three things then please mail them to us at our address listed at the bottom of the page.
