August 13, 2017 Leave a comment

Victor Austin is walking from Vancouver to Prince George, BC to raise awareness for Cancer Victims and to see his beloved father.

Donations are appreciated to support my Honor Walk for Cancer which are going to be used for food and lodging in my journey to see my Dad before his next surgery.

My email address for e-transfer is victoraustin2010 (@)

See more on the Facebook Event

I’m going to begin a journey to go see my Dad in Prince George BC Canada before his next and hopefully final cancer surgery on August 21st.

I’m doing this walk all Cancer victims.

Whether they are being treated for Cancer, or are Cancer survivors or for any frenz and familiez who have lost loved ones to cancer.

I invite you to be with me to help kick off my Honor Walk.

I’m hoping that a drum group can be there and someone can smudge me and anyone else at the kickoff. So I can have a safe journey back to my Dad.

My journey starts at my place and ends at University Hospital of Northern British Columbia in Prince George.

My Dad is already there getting medical treatment.

I will have about 766 km and one week to walk home to be with my Dad.

I am going solo and I am only going use what’s donated to me to sustain my journey.

Anyone wishing to donate to my journey can please e-transfer to my email at victoraustin2010(@)

I did this once before for a dear friend that I lost 5 months ago to Cancer.

I helped my friend Stephan get back to Winnipeg MB to be with his family in July 2015.

I had 20 cents to my name and left my fate in the Creator’s hands because once I got Stephen Pranteau home I would be on my own until my return flight.

The Creator took care of me the entire time I was there and I got to spend some good time with his family.

I did it cuz I love people and couldn’t stand seeing my friend not be with his family in his time of need.

So I know that the Creator will take care of me again on this new journey that I have decided to undertake.

The date for my departure is tentatively scheduled for Sunday but it could change to a bit earlier or later depending on how much support I can get before my journey.

I am in need some good walking shoes as all I have is formal dress clothes.

Some water bottles, non perishable food that I can put in my backpack. Power bank chargers so I can be sure to alwayz be accessible to everyone who will follow my journey on my blog that I made.

I am hoping that I can find some sponsors to help with logistics (food and lodging). So I can fully concentrate on jus walking.

I am hoping that there is two volunteers to accompany me with a mini van or truck.

I may be walking through some fire zones and if need to get out right away then we can do that.

One driver and one to document and update my blog

Please help Megaphone’s Joyful Voices Fundraising Campaign

November 18, 2009 1 comment



With your help, Megaphone can make this Christmas one of Joyful Voices for our vendors and community. Megaphone gives homeless and low-income people a chance to be heard, whether it’s by being a vendor, writing an article or having their issues covered in a story. For many, it’s an opportunity they’ve never had before.

“I really had no outlet until I started selling the paper,” says Megaphone vendor Danny Maloney. “It gave me the chance to interact and socialize with people and turn my life around.”

Our vendors take pride in selling Megaphone to their customers. When you buy a copy of the magazine from one of them, you are telling them that their voice matters. But in order for Megaphone to continue to give a voice to the voiceless, we need your support.

This Christmas season, Megaphone needs to raise $5,000 so we can keep working to empower homeless and low-income people, and make sure the rest of the city hears what they have to say. We need your donation.


Your donation helps pay for:

  • Vendor materials: T-shirts, ID badges, hats and bags
  • Printing and publishing costs
  • Office Supplies
  • Vendor Training

Please donate online or fill out this donation form and send a cheque to:

Megaphone Magazine
#611, 142-757 W. Hastings
Vancouver, BC
V6C 1A1

Please help Megaphone make this a season of Joyful Voices for all.

Thank you for your support,
