Share the Literacy Love

You can be part of solving a problem larger than ourselves. There are over 18 million U.S. kids in poverty, including over a million homeless students. Two-thirds of children in poverty have no books at home – zero. Researchers have found that poor infants hear 30 million fewer words when their brains are developing for life. 32 million adults and 1 in 5 high school graduates can’t read when success in our new economy demands it. A child unable to read is a child lost. Adults unable to read were once children who didn’t learn how. With your help today, we are changing this. Please donate to fund our mission to deliver recycled and new magazines and comics to at-risk readers for literacy.

Literacy is the first step on the path to civility, humanity, and world peace.

Consider the ignorance and mistrust that feeds inhumanity in the dark corners of the world. Civility is the antidote. Thoughtful literacy has the potential to eradicate ignorance and promote civility and peace. You can help us to change the world for good. Reading is where it all begins.
