MORE ABOUT THE APPEAL
At a crucial moment in André’s life, The Big Issue Foundation was able to be there for him. At a time when it could’ve been so easy to give up, we were able to offer him a hand up and support him to take steps towards a positive future.
We work exclusively with vendors that have chosen to begin a journey of self-help and change by selling The Big Issue magazine. We believe in a hand up, not a handout. Our approach is uniquely ‘vendor-centric’ and entirely driven by the needs and aspirations of the vendor. They are at the heart of what we do.
We value personal development, growth and change above all else. Whether it’s a big change or a small one, we provide ongoing coaching and support to Big Issue vendors so that they can take positive steps forward.
This winter, there is something you can do: by supporting The Big Issue Foundation, you will give Big Issue vendors like Andre something to look forward to, something to take their minds off their situation – most importantly of all – you will give a vendor hope for the future, a reason to go on.
Thank you for everything you have done so far. Your support creates help, hope and resilience. We appreciate your belief and concreate support, and know that without you, our work couldn’t happen.
Wishing you and your loved ones a warm, safe and joyous festive season and a very happy new year.
Together we can end poverty and exclusion for Big Issue vendors. Thank you
