Marie Mason’s birthday is January 26. Please send her a card and brighten her day! She loves to get mail from supporters and can receive mail from anyone — although she is limited in how many people she can write back.
Some ideas include: * Photos of the wild you find inspiring * Poetry * Cards (handmade are always great) * Letters * Notes of support
Be sure to check the guidelines below for the details on what is allowed/not allowed, especially when creating handmade cards. You may also want to include her name and prisoner number on the card in case it get separated from the envelope during processing.
Letter writing events are always welcome, although please note that her support team is considering the next step and there will probably be a call for public events in the upcoming months. We hopefully will have a rewritten, redesigned tri-fold informational brochure available for events by Marie’s birthday, so let us know if you would like some shipped to you.

Under no circumstances mention any illegal acts. Letters that mention other Green Scare prisoners may be rejected. Mason has a list of 100 pre-approved people she can write to; if you are not on that list, she will be able to receive your letter but not write back.
Everyone must use their first and last name when writing. All letters must be entirely in English. Be sure to include your return address on the envelope. You should also write her name and prisoner number on each piece of correspondence, as the prison tends to discard the envelope and then may “lose” track of who the letter is going to.
Last, do not send anything that is “affixed” to the letter or card – such as glitter and glue. Pen, pencil, crayon and paint are fine.
