Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Journalist David Bornstein makes the case for solution storytelling

Please enjoy this TEDx talk by New York Times columnist and journalist David Bornstein, author of  How to Change the World and Social Entrepreneurship: What Everyone Needs to Know

Our vision at MagazineLiteracy.org is to create a solution that extinguishes a primary cause of illiteracy, itself a root cause of poverty – the shortage of reading materials in the hands and homes of people who want to learn and love to read.  Our idea is to create a global literacy marketplace to deliver reading materials from people and businesses to new readers anywhere in the world.

Help us to tell our solution story, so we grow to reach more hands and homes with the wonderful magazines – and now comics – that make literacy happen.
