read your favorite magazine for charity

(Photo from Real Simple)

This website lets you buy your magazine subscriptions and support education. 40% of every dollar spent on the subscription goes to the school of your choice! (As long as the school is signed up for this fundraiser.)
I subscribed to Food and Wine through this service (actually, a gift from my mother through this service!) and am thinking about ordering another. Maybe The London Review of Books, Garden and Gun, Elle Decor, Southern Living, Harper's or The Saturday Evening Post... they have so many!
If your local schools aren't doing this, you could either suggest it to them
or order your subscriptions through New Mountain Hill Elementary in Georgia. That's my little cousins' school! You met them in this post.


  1. I must say this is one of my preferred ways to participate in fundraising ... which is one of my least favorite things to do :)

    Whew... I "finished" my list... & it was fun making it....actually I could have gone on & on ... I'm glad we were limited to ten things :)

  2. I like this idea. I have to say that living in the UK has made me very aware of charities and the good they do, and I like being a part of that. :)

    Thanks for pointing this really great scheme out to us.

  3. I always worry that money going towards public education will be used for programs that I don't approve of.....of which there are many.

  4. Thanks for this info! Cool idea.
    Southern Living is GREAT. Love it.

  5. Well, Garden and Gun... that's a new one to me... not sure how they go together.... this is a great idea. Thanks for stopping by my garden. Already feeling better as I found a half hour to sit back and get caught up with all my friends.... Tomorrow is a F.R.E.E. day from all construction, so I can't wait to see what fun I can have....

  6. I don't have the cookie gene..i have the pizza- pasta gene...

    loved this idea about the magazines too..

    thanks for stopping by farmhouse today

    more later, dear friend
    kary and buddy

  7. this is a great idea. And thanks for your comment- between the election & Haiti updates, I'm having a hard time motivating myself to get sleep.....

    Good night,
