Write Chelsea Manning

Write Chelsea Manning

From the post:

Thank you for supporting WikiLeaks whistle-blower US Army Private Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning! You can write her today. As of April 23, 2014, a Kansas district judge has approved PVT Manning’s request for legal name change, and you can address your envelopes to her as “Chelsea E. Manning.”

Mail must be addressed exactly as follows:

CHELSEA E. MANNING 89289
1300 NORTH WAREHOUSE ROAD
FORT LEAVENWORTH, KANSAS 66027-2304

Notes regarding this address:

  • Do not include a hash (“#”) in front of Manning’s inmate number.
  • Do not include any title in front of Manning’s name, such as “Ms.,” “Mr.,” “PVT,” “PFC,” etc.
  • Do not include any additional information in the address, such as “US Army” or “US Disciplinary Barracks.”
  • Do not modify the address to conform to USPS standards, such as abbreviating “North,” “Road,” “Fort,” or “Kansas.”
  • For international mail, either “USA” or “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” are acceptable on a separate line.

What you can send Chelsea

Chelsea Manning is currently eligible to receive mail, including birthday or holiday cards, from anyone who wishes to write. You are also permitted to mail unframed photographs. …

I contacted the project and was advised that the best gift for Chelsea is:

…money order or cashiers check made out to “Chelsea E. Manning” and mailed to her postal address. These funds will be deposited into Chelsea’s prison account. She uses this account to make phone calls, purchase stamps, and buy other small comfort items not provided by the prison.

Let Chelsea know you appreciate her bravery and sacrifice!
