Consumers pay their favorite magazines forward for literacy

20131213-092106.jpg

Consumers coast-to-coast are paying their favorite magazines forward by recycling them for literacy. Fully in the holiday and the recycling spirit, the magazines are arriving in every type of gift box imaginable, like this beautiful Vanity Fair magazine that arrived today with about 20 other gift magazines.

With titles for every age and interest, magazines are especially powerful for literacy. MagazineLiteracy.org gets favorite new and recycled magazines from throughout the magazine supply chain to literacy programs for at-risk readers – moms, dads, and children in shelters, mentoring and job training programs, and foster care.

Pay your magazines forward for literacy. Read them and then recycle them to put the powerful gift of literacy into the homes, hands, and hearts of children and families hungry to read.
