In the run-up to our biggest #VendorWeek yet, INSP is calling on all our supporters to donate their social reach to speak up for street paper vendors.
In 35 countries, our network of street papers offers support, hope and a livelihood to people facing homelessness, poverty and unemployment.
The first week of February is INSP’s international #VendorWeek – a celebration of people who are working their way out of poverty.
In addition to the many ‘real world’ events held by street papers, #VendorWeek will also take place online.
Using Thunderclap, we aim to get a message of support out to thousands of people internationally.
To join this ‘online flashmob’, all you have to do is follow the link above.
It will take you to a page where you can click to ‘support with Twitter’, ‘support with Facebook’ or ‘support with Tumblr’.
In February, your tweet will go out automatically with everyone else’s – thus raising the profile of the campaign.
Here’s some FAQs about Thunderclap, in case you haven’t used it before.
Thunderclap is the world’s first crowdspeaking platform. To date, more than 3 million people have donated their social reach for ideas and causes that matter, reaching more than 3.5 billion people in 238 countries and territories.
You can help us speak up for some of the world’s most marginalised people.
It’s quick, easy and free to get involved. Just follow this link to tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr that you’re standing up for the street paper movement this #VendorWeek. Then share your support to recruit more people!
