Megaphone Magazine will host its third annual Big Sell on February 6th. The event brings together notable Vancouverites to try their hand at selling copies of Megaphone alongside the magazine’s incredible team of local vendors.
The one hour event aims to raise funds for the Magazine’s vendor program, while also
helping to raise the profile of poverty and homeless in Vancouver and Victoria.
Megaphone is a monthly magazine that is sold by homeless and low-income vendors throughout Vancouver and Victoria, BC. Every purchase ($2), of Megaphone Magazine supports job opportunities for people experiencing poverty. In addition to being a good cause, the magazine offers an excellent collection of journalism, storytelling, poetry and culture. Chances are you’ve already seen Megaphone vendors around town and we strongly encourage picking one up. If you don’t have cash, you can even pay with the Megaphone app.
Past Big Sell guest-vendors include local celebs, business leaders, politicians, our editor-in-chief and even Mayor Gregor Robertson.
Homelessness has become an increasingly significant topic as the City of Vancouver moves forward with their temporary modular housing project, which aims to create 600 living spaces for homeless and low-income citizens throughout the city. It’s estimated that there are currently more than 2,100 homeless people living in Vancouver.
