A Hand Up

Sell magazines. Keep the money. Get off the streets.

If you are facing homelessness, you can sell magazines and earn immediate money.

Your first 20 magazine are free. Sell them for $5 each in a public place and keep all the cash. Next, you can choose to buy more magazines for a $1 each–as as many or as few as you want.

This starts a cycle of self-empowerment, income creation and financial opportunity that has no limits. It becomes what you make it!
