Share your magazines for a neighbor’s journey back home

by John Mennell

I had a meeting with a homeless man who, except for the fact that was traveling with all his possessions in two sacks, I would never have known was a homeless neighbor. He explained many things – among them that the homeless people he knows are avid readers who especially love magazines. He, like many, has been knocked off the road from a job and a home of his own – by any number of hazards that face us all, and he is on a path back home.

There is enormous value in creating an opportunity for people to share their love for magazines with children, families, and neighbors to have with them on their own journeys back home.

Magazine sharing is age-old. Share the magazines you love with a child, family, or neighbor in a homeless or domestic violence shelter, mentoring or job training program – or foster care, or served by the vast network of community agencies in 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!
