The 2 Billion+ magazines printed each year for US readers would create a stack 37 million feet high, or 7000+ miles into space, 107 times further than Bezos or Branson. Lined up into the sky, end to end, it’s 366,000 miles, enough to lasso the moon from earth.
Literacy ends poverty, of the mind, heart, and pocket. Most poor families have zero books at home. With titles for every age, enthusiasm, professional aspiration, and language, magazines are the most powerful literacy engines on earth.
March is National Reading Month. Everything begins with reading.
At MagLiteracy.org, our moonshot is to rescue every available magazine for literacy from consumers, publishers, and newsstands.
Join us to share the magazine love to change the lives of so many eager at-risk readers for good.
