Be a One Step Away vendor for a day at the 2018 Big Sell Off

This year, anyone can join OSA vendors in selling the street newspaper. It's part fundraiser, part advocacy event.

Wanna learn firsthand how hard it is to sell a $1 newspaper in the cold?

Spoiler: It’s probably harder than you think.

One Step Away (OSA), Philly’s street newspaper that’s largely sold — and written — by people who have been touched by homelessness, hosts an annual fundraiser called the Big Sell Off that invites guest vendors to sell the paper alongside its regular vendors in those neon green vests.

In years past, those guest vendors have been professionally adjacent folks from around town, such as Depaul USA Director Sandra Guillory, and media makers, including Generocity’s own Tony Abraham.

This year, OSA is doing things a little differently by inviting members of the public to register as guest vendors, both individually and in small teams. It’s happening, in part, to spread the word about OSA’s expansion of sales locations beyond Center City. But guest vendors are also challenged to use the Big Sell Off as a fundraiser to support OSA, with goals staggered from “Supporter” level ($250) to “Ambassador” level ($1,000).

Here are the basics:

  • When — Friday, Feb. 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
  • Where — All over the city
  • How much — $25 to $60 per person, depending on how much swag you want to take home
