Share the Literacy Love
Reading is where it all begins. Support the largest humanitarian literacy marketplace on the planet to rescue every available magazine and comic for delivery to at-risk readers to promote literacy, strengthen readership and learning, and to build self-reliance to end food insecurity and poverty. MagLiteracy.org supplies recycled and new magazines and comics to literacy programs. Literacy ends poverty. Our understanding of anything you can imagine begins with knowing how to read. By funding our mission to share the special literacy superpower of the magazines and comic books you love with at-risk readers, you can help develop lasting, life-long reading habits that change lives for good.
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.
Magazines and comics are the most powerful literacy engines on the planet.
Why are magazines and comics so special for literacy? Promoting literacy establishes a lifelong reading habit. Think about this – with titles for every reading age, interest, professional aspiration, and language, we can tailor your gift to deliver recycled and new magazines and comics that match exact literacy needs – like teaching science and engineering, or mentoring a teen who loves cars, sports, or fashion, or culinary job training, or comforting a homeless family. Studies show that holding reading materials in your hands increases learning. Magazines and comic books are familiar and not intimidating. They educate and inspire. Magazines and comic books in hands and homes foster ownership and build self-esteem. Please donate to fund our literacy deliveries.
