Supporting Literacy at Home

Thank you Tiffany for helping organize this Getting Started article for people who want to collect magazines and comics at home to recycle to new readers. Join us to start recycling today.

Hello and welcome to MagazineLiteracy.org where our mission is to change the world— one magazine, one comic book, one reader at a time. Out of the goodness of your heart, you have decided to donate magazines and comics to one of our wonderful programs. We are so appreciative and thrilled that you have decided to do this!

The process of recycling is easy and we want to make the process as simple as possible for you so you can feel comfortable about donating again and again! This article will explain the process step by step for you.

MAGAZINE HARVEST – Share recycled magazines and comics for literacy

Share your recycled magazines and comics with new readers via literacy programs. We’ll send them to children, teens, and families in homeless and domestic violence shelters, job training and mentoring programs, and foster care. Learn how here.

First things first – gather all your gently used magazines and comics – clean, with no torn pages or covers, and in good or very good condition. Carefully remove any paper mailing labels and black out ink labels with a permanent marker – or we will. This protects your personal information and allows for a dignified experience for the new reader. Once we receive your magazines and comics, we will put a “gift” labels over the spot where the old label was.

That’s all there is to it. Just bundle up your magazines and comics and send them to us.

Raise funds or donate now to support our local literacy deliveries – 100% of funds received supports literacy.

So, that is the process for donating your gently used magazines and comics! Super simple right?! I hope this article helps! If you have any questions, please be in touch.
