Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

At Work

It feels good to share the magazines you love and they are very much appreciated and enjoyed.  Here is a sample email you can send to your colleagues to collect and recycle magazines to new readers.

Magazines are great – we love to get them and read them. Please join me in recycling “gently read” magazines to new readers – homeless families… moms and kids in domestic violence shelters… via food pantries… etc.

I’ve set up a collection box for any magazines you’d like to share. Don’t worry about mailing labels – I’ll remove or mark them out with a permanent marker, and MagazineLiteracy.org will cover up the spot with a fresh “gift” label.

Any magazines that a child or adult would enjoy are needed – as long as they are clean with no torn or cut covers or pages, or moisture damage.

Thanks for helping to feed families hungry to read.
