Support Megaphone - COVID-19
Donate to Megaphone and Hope in Shadows to help us better support our 175 vendors during COVID-19

The recent #COVID_19 outbreak reminds us of the inequalities our homeless and low-income neighbours already face on a daily basis. To many of our vendors, selling outdoors and at event venues is one of their main sources of income. With the decrease in foot traffic and event cancellations, we predict many vendors will see a dip in their income.
We are now raising emergency funds to prepare for the current outbreak and the possible implications it might have on our vendors. With your help. Megaphone will develop a contingency plan to better support our 175 homeless and low-income vendors. Your support means:
- We can provide additional income generating opportunities such as content contribution and alternative sales opportunities for Megaphone vendors.
- We can develop a short-term alternative business model so that vendors can continue to earn a meaningful income through the COVID-19 outbreak.
- We can continue our essential operations to publish award-winning journalism and continue our social enterprise business model.
Our community needs you now more than ever. Would you conisder a donation now?
