Give It Away for the Good of All Involved

Fangoria
Got a stack of magazines taking up precious space in your sitting room. Why not give them away? Donating magazines is a great way to get rid of clutter and perhaps brighten some one’s day. I created a list of some places that might benefit from a donation of magazines:

  • men’s and women’s prisons
  • homeless shelters
  • YMCAs
  • local library
  • battered women’s shelters
  • public schools
  • hospitalized friend
  • sick neighbor
  • church or synagogue
  • art students
  • nursing homes
  • traveling missionaries
  • community hospitals

Before donating used magazines to any organization or individual, ask first if they will accept them. You wouldn’t want to get a reputation as a magazine dumper. And of course, all your donations should be appropriate for the recipient. I doubt a children’s recreation center has much use for your old Fangorias.
