2019 Big Sell Off

February 22, 2019


  • What is The Big Sell Off?

  • The Big Sell Off is an international collaboration with 120 street papers in 35 countries, supporting 20,050 homeless street vendors as they work to build better lives.
  • For one hour, at noon, on February 22, 2019, YOU can make a difference. Join our 2019 Big Sell Off to show your support and distribute magazines alongside a One Step Away vendor.
I support One Step Away because it is a concrete, obvious way to help people directly. I feel like if I support the paper, there are results that come for individuals. People who are serious about helping themselves, I want to help them.

- Don Campbell, President & CEO, VoIP & IT

I think the concept of not just supporting individuals but helping teach them to support themselves is something we all should be on board with. I support helping people help themselves.

- Bill Anderson, FOX 29 Reporter

I support One Step Away because they remind us of the humanness in homelessness. They put names and faces to homelessness. They bring visibility by publicizing really important voices and stories.

- Shannon Morgan, Associate Director, Depaul USA
