Father’s Day is just four days away. This year, instead of a gadget or a pair of socks, give dad a gift that has an impact. Please
donate to the Innocence Project today
in the name of a special dad in your life, and you’ll have the chance to send or print a custom e-card. You can send a meaningful Father’s Day gift and help to reunite an innocent prisoner with his family – and it will take less than five minutes.
Today, La’Keisha Butts wrote to Innocence Project email subscribers about reuniting with her dad, Rickie Johnson, after he had served 25 years in prison. She wrote:
My father is my hero and an inspiration to so many people he met over the years. Not only did he survive a quarter-century in prison, he did it with a positive outlook on life. When he would tell me years ago that he was sure he’d be free someday, I would admire his optimism but take it with a grain of my own realism, knowing the odds were against him. Now I know that the truth can overcome the odds any time. Whenever I feel down about anything, I think about my dad’s strength and his triumph.
This Father’s Day, I’ll be celebrating my dad’s freedom and thinking of all of those other families who aren’t so lucky. Please give to the Innocence Project today to help free the innocent from prison and grant a Father’s Day wish for a daughter like myself.
