Do It Yourself

Why not raise money for charity by holding your own event or get sponsored to stay quiet for a day...shave off your hair...or climb Mount Everest!

The Big Issue Foundation relies on people from all walks of life doing all kinds of things to raise money for those who are homeless. Without you, we wouldn't be able to fund our vital services to support some of the most vulnerable people in the UK. Whatever you choose to do, we want to make fundraising for people who are homeless as easy as possible for you, so we've produced a Fundraising A-Z to give you some ideas of how you could raise money to support our work. Remember - you don't have to stick to the ideas on this page - just let us know what you're planning to do to raise money for charity and we'll support you as much as we can.

Contact us on 0207 526 3459 or email events@bigissue.com to tell us about your charity event or for advice about how to raise money for charity or event ideas.
