Cards For The Incarcerated
There are currently more than 2 million people in America’s jails and prisons, and they celebrate birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and New Year’s just like the rest of us. Life continues inside prison walls, but Hallmark doesn’t make a card that says, “I hope you’ll get parole soon!” Three Square Greetings, a company that makes cards expressly intended for prisoners, was founded by Terrye Cheathem after she had a difficult time finding an appropriate card for her brother-in-law, who served 11 months in prison. “There weren’t any cards on the shelf that said anything like, ‘Hey, you must make better choices,'” Terrye said. Pick a card for your deadbeat boyfriend after the jump…
Inside: Itâ€™s your birthday and I know that youâ€™d rather be almost anywhere else right now. Hopefully, one year older will really mean one year wiser for you. Take care.
Inside: If it werenâ€™t for those walls, Iâ€™d give you lots of hugs and kisses.
Inside: You had the choice to be â€œnaughty or nice.â€ And you chose . . . . . . . Oh well, now you have to do your time. But, Christmas wonâ€™t be the same without you here. Stay safe. Merry Christmas.
Inside: You may be behind walls. But, we are still family. That will never change.
Inside: When you called recently, I wasnâ€™t very sympathetic. I guess Iâ€™ve heard your promises to change too many times. Please – stop promising to change and just do it.
