Recycle Magazines for Literacy

Thanks for your generous support. We have a large need for children’s magazines in good condition (no torn or cut covers or pages).

Please complete the form below to tell us about the magazines or comics that you would like to recycle to new readers, so we can keep in touch about our changing needs. Your support and involvement matters and is greatly appreciated. We are growing and need your help to reach more at-risk readers.

Currently, we can only receive your magazine and comic book donations if you mail them to us. We need help starting local recycling and delivery efforts. Please contact us about organizing our literacy work in your town.

Recycling the magazines and comics you love to new readers is a meaningful way for consumers and publishers to end illiteracy and poverty, worldwide. With titles for every reading age, interest, and language, magazines and comics are the most powerful literacy engines in the planet. 

We will recycle your clean, gently read magazines and comics to new readers – feeding kids and families hungry to read. Bundles of recycled publications are prepared by local volunteer teams to meet needs sent in by literacy programs, such as food pantries, homeless and domestic violence shelters, youth mentoring and job training programs, foster care, and teachers for at-risk readers.

Please submit this form so that we can contact you about receiving your magazines and comics:

You can volunteer here to help us find literacy needs and to set up a magazine recycling operation in your community.
