The Hope in Shadows calendar is sold on the streets of Vancouver and Victoria by Megaphone's homeless and low-income vendors. Vendors buy each calendar for $10 and sell them for $20, keeping the profit. The calendar is made up of photos taken by our vendors in an annual photography contest. All photos are taken on single-use disposable film cameras.
2017's contest theme is "Heart and Soul." You can see all the photos and vote for your favourite here.
The 2018 calendar launched on October 11, 2017 in Vancouver and on October 18, 2017 in Victoria. The calendar typically sells from October to January or whenever it sells out. To buy your calendar and support meaningful work for people in poverty, find where Megaphone's street vendors usually sell using the Megaphone App.
Live outside of Vancouver or Victoria? Can't find a vendor? Buy your calendar online here and have it shipped to your door or pick up directly from our Vancouver office.
