Miami Family Bundles Magazines for New Readers

Amelia collecting magazinesIn a reversal on the classic image of newspaper delivery from the seat of a bicycle, a Miami brother and sister – Nate and Amelia Rich – are riding a bicycle around their neighborhood to collect recycled magazines for bundling and delivery to at-risk children and families. The children attend Gulliver Academy and have initiated this project community service project to share favorite magazines with other children and families.  The magazines will be posted in the MagazineLiteracy.org online literacy marketplace for delivery to new readers in homeless and domestic violence shelters, and mentoring and job training programs.

People love to share their magazines with others, which gives them a new life and delivers enormous value to new readers in literacy programs.

Learn how to recycle magazines for literacy in your community.
