Jon Briskin and Andrew Thornton are hitting the streets and need your help!

Jon and Andrew will be selling copies of The Big Issue magazine alongside a street vendor, as part of The Big Sell campaign. COVID has affected us all in one way or another, but for those living on the margins, like many Big Issue vendors, the impact has been profound and enduring.

But before Jon and Andrew can hit the streets they need to raise $2,000 for The Big Issue so they can continue their support of those experiencing homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage.

Thank you for your support.

I am proud of Origin and its wonderful leaders. Over past couple of years, I have had the privilege of volunteering at The Big Issue for their Christmas lunches and in the process have met most fantastic humans. Thanks Origin Foundation for providing such volunteering platform to connect with those who continue to impress me year on year - as even though they are doing it tough, they still make the most honest efforts and earn an honest living. Covid has not made it any easier, however confident continued support from corporations and its workforce and human resilience at The Big Issue will go a long way.
