I'm fundraising for...

From 18-31 March I’m taking part in The Big Sell, raising funds for The Big Issue and their hardworking vendors who experience homelessness and marginalisation and disadvantage. 

Over the last two years The Big Issue vendors have had it tough. Lockdowns and decreasing foot traffic have significantly impacted their ability to sell magazines and earn a meaningful income. To help, I’m raising funds in March to keep helping vendors help themselves, and to make sure they can continue to earn an income and improve their lives. To do this, I need your support.

I’m hoping to raise $1,000 for The Big Issue and their vendors, help me meet my goals and support those on the margins by donating today.

Thank you.
