One Step Away

NOVEMBER 2016

Meet our team on page 9!

Monthly

Vendors

This time of year is always exciting for

One Step Away

because it signifies when

we started – and what we all have accomplished, and overcame, to get here. Each

one of us has a story, and

One Step Away

brings them all together. On December

15,

One Step Away

turns 7! To celebrate, we planned some new goals for this year

in hopes to better serve Philadelphia's ever-changing community.

Since 2009, we created 2,000 jobs. 2,000 people could work, earn a meaningful

income, and better their lives. 2,000 stories, with one underlying theme: we are

all one step away. In the upcoming months we will be sharing these stories of

triumph with you. Because of you, our vendors can build better lives.

Over the last seven years we have published 84 monthly newspapers, giving

a voice to more than 1,008 community members. Hardworking vendors have

distributed over 965,000 newspapers throughout the city of Philadelphia, to, you,

our over 2,400,000 readers.

We are on target to reach 1 million

One Step Away

papers distributed by January

2017 – help us get there! Continue to support your local vendor, buy the paper,

read the paper, and spread the word. Advocate for social justice, for those less

fortunate, people whose voices do not get heard.

For our 7th year, help us continue to grow by pledging to be a

One Step Away

investor on page 3. Your investment will help us reach our goals.

This year we have four main goals. 1. Build a new website so you can read

One

Step Away

online and connect with your favorite vendors. 2. Get new vendor

work gear (vests, hats, bags, gloves) to keep the vendors safe and warm while on

the streets. 3. Improve sales training for new and existing vendors to help them

be successful in One Step Away and for their next step in life. 4. Build

community partnerships.

Will you invest to build better lives? Make our 7th birthday wishes come true by

donating today. We need $18,00 to make our goals a reality, and you can help!

Sincerely,

Emily Taylor
