MagazineLiteracy.org

Join us to end illiteracy and poverty.

It all begins with reading

With titles for every interest and reading age, magazines and comics are the most powerful tools available for literacy. Large-scale partnerships with major publishers could not be more timely.

According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, poverty for U.S. children is rising to levels near 20 million kids.

 

Reading is Fundamental says that two-thirds of children in poverty – over 12 million kids – live in homes with no books – a stunning statistic – we can fix that today.

 

Each night 35,000+ women, many who are moms with children, seek the safety of a domestic abuse shelter – we can comfort them tonight with a magazine.

 

We all know the powerful impact that magazines have had during our formative years as youth. There are over 1 million homeless students – we can give them hope for tomorrow by sharing the magazines we love around common interests.

 

With your support, MagazineLiteracy.org operates a crowdfunded literacy marketplace to meet literacy needs with bundles of recycled Magazines and new magazines for new readers – moms and kids in domestic violence and homeless shelters, youth in mentoring and job training programs, foster care, and other community literacy programs. We get favorite magazines into the hands, homes, and hearts of children and families.

How it works.

  1. Literacy Programs register and post literacy needs creating a wishlist of magazines
  2. Consumers and Businesses fund new and send recycled magazines for literacy
  3. Literacy Programs order new magazines and recycled magazines for delivery
  4. Magazines get to new readers via literacy programs.
