Magazines or Books

If you have a lot of old magazines or books, chances are you already read most of them. There are lots of people who would like to receive and read those magazines and books, see the cool pictures, and get some great information from those items you no longer need. Knowing that you will be giving them to someone who really appreciates them will make you feel better and get rid of some clutter in your home. Not to mention, eco-friendly and better than recycling.

Send us your magazines or books, at least 5, in barely used or nearly new condition and we will send you one free issue or take the cost of one issue off your subscription and list you as a donor to your charity. We would love to get magazines and books from around the world and share a global culture.

Make sure you remove the address labels that are on them, so others don’t see your name and address. Although we will check and remove them, be sure to take this extra step before you send them.

We donate based on theme of the magazine or book to ensure that we do not give something inappropriate to small children for example. If you have a preference please specify where you would like your donated magazines or books sent.
