Literacy ends poverty. Reading is where it all begins. Join us.

Call to action

We know that literacy has the power to end poverty. We also know that, with titles for every reading level and interest, magazines are especially powerful for literacy.

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Education, there are over 1 million homeless students in America.

The U.S. Census tells us that there are over 16 million children living in poverty.

According to Reading is Fundamental, two-thirds of children living in poverty have no books at home.

You can change this – one magazine, one reader at a time.
