One Step Away is Philadelphia's street newspaper. We are part of a larger street paper movement with over 114 papers in 35 countries. Lend your support to the movement and help keep over 14,000 homeless or jobless individuals employed by supporting The Big Sell Off 2015.
In conjunction with street papers across the world, One Step Away is hosting The Big Sell Off 2015. During the Big Sell Off 2015, we invite leaders in the community and local media to come together to celebrate our vendors by fundraising and distributing the paper on Philadelphia's streets.
WHAT HAPPENS THAT DAY?: A vendor will be partnered with a community leader and a media representative to sell the paper across Philadelphia during the lunch hour on Feb. 5, 2015, 12-1:30PM. All money raised by selling the paper in that hour will go to the vendor. Community leaders and the media rep. will get a better understanding of the program and our vendors, and our vendors will see for themselves the respect this community holds for them. Following this, we'll have a small gathering at our vendor office downtown.
BEFORE THAT DAY: Community leaders will be asked to raise $1,000 for One Step Away, either through a donation from personal friends, themselves or businesses. And media representatives. will be asked to cover the upcoming event by highlighting our champion fundraisers and vendors.
