MagPower – a marketplace where sharing magazine love fuels the new Sharing Economy

20130720-103605.jpg

Stand up if you have ever read Highlights magazine in a dentist office, or O, the Oprah Magazine or More at the salon, or Car and Driver or Popular Science at the library, or sent a gift subscription for Ranger Rick, Jack & Jill, Sports Illustrated for Kids, or Owl to your child or grandchild. That rolling thunder was the sound of tens, even hundreds of millions of people standing up who love to read and to share magazines.

The business and the community of sharing magazines is age-old. Copies are sent to salons, doctors and dentists and passed around dorms and parties. Articles and images are clipped, snapped, and posted to vision and Pinterest boards to remind, inspire, and share.

Our mission at MagazineLiteracy.org is to foster magazine sharing to support at-risk children, families and neighbors in homeless and domestic violence shelters, mentoring and job training programs, foster care, and via the vast network of community literacy programs served by the food bank supply chain.

Join our magazine sharing economy.  We need your support and your participation in our magazine literacy marketplace.  Help to change the world – one magazine at a time!
