Vancouver’s street paper, Megaphone – possible model for future issues of Grit Uplifted?

Megaphone is a magazine sold on the streets of Vancouver by homeless and low-income vendors. Published every two weeks by the not-for-profit Street Corner Media Foundation, vendors buy the paper for 75 cents and sell the magazine for a suggested donation of $2. All money from the transaction goes into the pocket of the vendor.

¬†Megaphone’s goal is to provide a voice and an economic opportunity for homeless and low-income people while building grassroots support to end poverty.
