I Carry A Story
Why is it that some people's stories become book titles and newspaper headlines, while others are never even told? Now we shed light on the reality that many close their eyes to. Everyone, all of us, carry a story. So do you. And the Faktum seller you may have avoided on the street.
"Jag bär på en historia", which translates to "I Carry A Story", is a small drop with twelve one of a kind re-use products based on the turning point in twelve Faktum-magazine sellers lives.
All profit goes directly to Faktums work for a society without homelessness, poverty, and exclusion.
Faktum is a Swedish street newspaper that is sold by homeless and socially vulnerable people in Sweden. The newspaper was founded in 2001 and is published on a monthly basis. The aim of Faktum is to provide people in vulnerable situations with a source of income and a way to improve their own situation, while also raising awareness about issues related to homelessness and poverty. The content of the newspaper includes a mix of current events, social issues, and personal stories, and it is written by both journalists and the vendors themselves.
