Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

Like Johnny Appleseed’s orchards, a Literacy Market sprouts in Columbus Ohio to feed people hungry to read

Today, with long-time friend Yogesh Ganesan, and generous supplies of beautiful reading materials from consumers, Highlights, Conde Nast, and many other publishers, we open our Columbus Ohio Literacy Market.

These wonderful periodicals are just in from Conde Nast HQ in NYC and Highlights right here in Columbus, and available at no cost for at-risk readers via food pantries, mentoring, job training, homeless and domestic abuse shelters, and foster care.

We are seeking agencies interested in receiving this first supply. Many more will follow. What are your dreams? For some it’s a chicken in every pot. For MagazineLiteracy.org, it’s reading materials in every hand and home – our mission is to share the joy of reading while ending illiteracy and poverty.

Reading is Fundamental says that most poor children and families have zero books – it’s shocking. We can fix that today! Each night 35,000 moms, many with children, leave everything behind to seek safety in a domestic abuse shelter. Help us find them and comfort and empower them. There are 1 million homeless students in our schools in every community – join with us to give them hope for a better tomorrow.

Every journey, no matter how grand or far, begins with a single step, followed by another, then more. These first boxes of beautiful magazines mark our first steps in Columbus Ohio. Walk with us and tell the world!
