Are you experiencing poverty or homelessness? Are you looking for flexible, meaningful work? We are accepting new vendors to sell Megaphone magazine and the Hope in Shadows calendar! If you are are experiencing poverty, homelessness, and/or living on a low fixed income, and looking for a way to earn money through a flexible job - come to a vendor training to learn more.
No personal identification is required to become a vendor. At a new vendor orientation, you will be set up with everything you need to get started working as a vendor:
- a Vendor ID badge,
- a license to sell Megaphone and Hope in Shadows, and
- 10 free papers to get you jumpstarted.
After that - you buy each copy of Megaphone for 75cents up front, and sell them to customers for $2. You keep the money you earn from every sale. We hold monthly vendor meetings, additional training, and skills-building classes to support your work.
As a vendor, you have access to a range of incentives, activities, and more, including:
- earning free Megaphone vendor gear (a hat, bag, raincoat);
- earning free papers;
- participating as a photographer in the Hope in Shadows photo contest;
- invitations to free, vendor-only events; and
- much more!
