Dear Program Director,

Thousand Kites would like to offer your station the 10th annual Calls from Home,
a special edited program (5:00, 10:00, 26:00, or 56:00) that brings the voices of families across
the nation to the airwaves as they send greetings directly to their
incarcerated loved ones.
The program features calls that share the
intimate power of families speaking straight to their loved ones behind
bars. The material was recorded between Nov.30 to Dec. 7th, via a
24-hour toll-free line and special live recorded call-in-program on
December 7th.
