About

You can help literacy end poverty. We need your help planning and running our global literacy marketplace start-up - it's like a food bank that delivers reading materials to programs serving at-risk readers, nationwide, and around the world.

Most U.S. poor families have zero books at home - poor infants hear 30 million fewer words - there are 1 million homeless students - 35,000 moms and kids will sleep in a domestic abuse shelter tonight. Millions more readers are waiting, worldwide. MagLiteracy.org gets new and recycled magazines and comics to at-risk readers via food pantries, homeless and domestic abuse shelters, youth mentoring and job training programs, foster care and orphanages - here in Columbus, nationwide, and around the world.

Everything begins with reading. With titles for every age, interest, and language, magazines and comics are the most powerful literacy engines on the planet. Help us get them into hands and homes.

We need your help planning and organizing our reading material collection, sorting, and delivery operations. We are setting up a local marketplaces where literacy programs can select publications at no cost. We need help running our online marketplace, where literacy programs place orders. We need help with event planning, social media, and fundraising. Join us.
