Join the Megaphone Magazine Big Sell on February 6th as local celebrities, business leaders, influencers, and politicians spend an hour as Megaphone Guest Vendors. They’ll be selling Megaphone alongside vendors to support them and raise the profile of poverty and homelessness in our communities.
Megaphone Magazine’s Big Sell
Where: Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza (Georgia Street)
When: Tuesday, February 6, 2018 10:30am to 11:30am
Street papers like Megaphone do this event around the world to celebrate the hard work of 10,000 vendors. I participated in the event in 2016, alongside Janet, who was a total pro! It was the first time Vancouver’s Megaphone participated in the event and it was a huge success. Vendors and guest vendors sold more than 250 copies of Megaphone in just under an hour.
Megaphone is an award-winning social enterprise that provides an economic opportunity and a voice to people experiencing poverty and homelessness in Vancouver and Victoria. We produce the monthly Megaphone Magazine, annual Hope in Shadows calendar, and annual Voices of the Street literary edition. All are sold by our street vendors to generate income.
We work with more than 200 marginalized people in British Columbia every year through their vendor and writing workshop programs.
Find a vendor in Vancouver or Victoria to buy your magazine. Just $2 supports meaningful work for people experiencing poverty in your community, and gets you a great read in return. Download the Megaphone App for iPhone and Android to find & pay vendors, even when you don’t have cash.
Buy a Megaphone Magazine at the Big Sell on Tuesday. Megaphone’s 160+ vendors in Vancouver and Victoria work hard every day to create positive change in their own lives, and in the communities we share. Follow the conversation online @MegaphoneMag.
