[Bookstoprisoners] Lincoln's Challenge cadets

I really like the idea of looking for co-sponsors, I think that it can only
bring more publicity and people to the event. I think that any steps we take
in this direction will go a long way towards growing the project in our
commuity and increasing our bandwidth to serve inmates in the future.
However, saying 'it would be nice' and doing it are two very different
things. Unfortunately I'm pretty maxed-out already and at least at this
point, won't be able to commit to much more than 'day of' activities and
e-promotion (web site / email flyers etc).
