Be An Idea is a firm believer in second chances and we love raising funds and supporting charities and organisations that devote themselves to this fantastic cause. We are hugely confident in the work being done by the Yellow Ribbon Project and it is because of this that we are sending our own team of enthusiastic runners to represent Be An Idea at the Yellow Ribbon Prison Run 2017.
Every year, more than 10,000 ex-offenders complete their sentences and are released from the various prisons and drug rehabilitation centres (DRCs). It is disheartening that ex-offenders have to live with the stigma of having served time behind bars when they are released from prison, one that can often be more punishing than the prison sentence itself. Many ex-offenders, once released, find themselves literally stepping into a second prison. This time it would be a prison with invisible bars, of suspicion, of mistrust and of discrimination.The best rehabilitation regime during incarceration is of no use if ex-offenders find themselves rejected at every turn when they are released into the larger community.Your generous donation to the Yellow Ribbon Fund will go a long way to help us fund rehabilitative and aftercare programmes, which are the supporting mechanisms to facilitate the reintegration of an individual back to the community and his family.
