Default Is there a way to send money to prison inmates via Pay Pal?

I am not sure if this where this thread should go, I apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

Hello everyone, I'm looking for a site or something that will allow me to send a money gift to inmates via paypal. Does anyone know of such a site? Also, please, if anyone knows a site where I can send letters to inmates? I wish I purchase "stamps" with paypal too, if such site exists. Can they write back? I haven't a specific person to write to, but I want to get to know how their lives are and give them hope. I want to know their side of the story too, not just the prosecution or the media's.

It is the holiday time of the year.

Thank you very much! Happy holidays!

Maybe you could donate some money to a prison ministry or organisation that deals with helping those stuck in the justice system. Might be a more productive way of helping as opposed to just giving gifts to individual inmates.

But I commend you for wanting to help! The world needs more people like you

Default Sending Money !!

The best way to send money to inmates, is to call Western Union @ 1-800-634-3422, then hit prompt for a "live " person.
I am not sure , but think this way will send money to inmates anywhere.
My son is in Pollock, but this is what they ask you__-your name , address, a card #, you give them the Code City, which I think is for anywhere as they go by inmate #.
Code City B.O.P.DC. It costs 7.95 to send 20.00 or 50.00.
As soon as you hang up , the money is there.
If you call them, be sure you tell them where your loved on is located.I think this is for any where.

There are a few online services for sending funds electronically to an inmate's account.

JPay.com
Western Union
CyberSuite

As far as prisoner pen pals - there are dozens of sites where you can find a pen pal. Just Google "prisoner pen pals" or "inmate pen pals" and you'll find many sites.

PTO has a pen pal forum. Click here. There are ads by state from inmates who want pen pals.
