Donations to Eric's support fund
are used to help him pay for phone calls to loved ones, stamps
and writing materials, books, etc. These funds are also used to
help his loved ones pay for trips down to Terminal Island to visit
him. Visits are incredibly important to Eric and his loved ones
and are imperative for maintaining everyone's sanity. Please
consider making a contribution through PayPal (yes, we hate it
too). If you would rather not use PayPal, please contact us and
we will tell you how you can donate (email: info[at]supporteric[dot]org).
You can also contribute by donating directly to Eric's
commissary, which will allow him to buy stamps, phone cards, food
and others essentials. You can use either Western Union or a money
order. Western Union is quicker but has fees associated with it.
For instructions on how to put money into Eric's commissary account
visit this link at the Federal Bureau of Prisons Website:
You will need Eric's
name and registration number (Eric Taylor McDavid, 16209-097).Please
also include these on the money order itself.
Support Eric t-shirts
are also available. All proceeds from the shirts will go directly
to Eric's support fund. If you would like to order a t-shirt,
Eric is a long way from home in an incredibly stressful environment.
Please take a moment to send Eric a letter of support! It would
mean so much to him. You can send postcards, cards, photocopies
of news articles, stories, black & white drawings, or simple
notes of support. Please keep in a mind a few important points when
- All letters must have
a return address on the envelope.
- Please also put a
return address on the letter itself, as prisoners are almost never
given the envelopes.
- Keep in mind that
all mail is read by authorities. Please do not discuss his case,
charges or issues relating to either.
- Pictures are allowed,
but must be 4x6 size or smaller. No Polaroids.
- Eric cannot receive
envelopes, blank paper or stamps.
- Avoid using white-out,
stickers, tape, colored ink/paper or glitter.
- PLAIN cards are allowed
but you must write something inside.
- Most facilities do
not allow torn pages from books, magazine or newspaper clippings.
Photocopies, however, are accepted

even if unsolicited, mail can still result in sanctions against

like commissary, legal fees, and visits from his partner). *
