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.
