This episode was a very intense one for me. I was able to thank somebody who helped pull me out of the darkest place that I had ever been in my life. I connected with Co-Director of the Human Kindness Foundation, Sita Lozoff. Sita along with her husband Bo and Ram Dass, founded the Prison Ashram Project in 1973. Bo & Sita then went on to created the non-profit organization,The Human Kindness Foundation in 1987 to encompass the prison work and other projects.
Each week, HFK receives approximately 400 letters from prison and jail inmates. Staff and volunteers answer each letter by sending books, CDs, and personal notes. They also produce a newsletter three times per year, which anyone is welcome to receive. There are approximately 38,000 people currently on their mailing list.
