The John Howard Society has awarded grants to these three men in the first distribution of the Ed Griffin Educational Bursary

  • An inmate who’s earned two bachelor’s degrees and is now working on his masters
  • An inmate who wants an electric typewriter to turn in papers for his masters at Trinity Western. People in prison are not allowed to have computers.
  • An inmate who wants to get his bachelor’s in environmental studies

I’m very happy about this because education is the proven way out of crime. All of these men have to pay for their own post-secondary education

During the rest of May, I’d be happy to send you one of my ebooks if you make a donation. Click here to make a donation and then email me which ebook you’d like. I have most in Adobe (pdf) format or epub which seems to work with most readers.

If you don’t have a reader, you can still read these books on your computer.

Just make a donation and I’ll send you the book of your choice. The John Howard Society uses the Canada Helps organization to collect money for the bursary. They get $3.00 or every contribution. Be sure to click the Ed Griffin Educational Bursary under Fund Designation or write it in the box.

You get a tax receipt when you make the donation. I don’t get a record of who does what, so you have to send me an email to get your book.  ed@edgriffin.net
