From midday on Tuesday 30 November #GivingTuesday until midday on Tuesday 7 December, all donations made to The Big Issue Foundation through our online Christmas Challenge page will be doubled! A Gift of £10 becomes £20, £20 becomes £40, and £50 becomes £100 – at no extra cost to you!
Donating this week means twice the impact, and twice the support we can provide to Big Issue vendors, like Jason.
I’m a 45-year-old man that suffers from a plethora of mental health disorders. The support The Big Issue Foundation has given me will result in me having the keys to my own front door in my hand and I couldn’t begin to describe the enormity of the problems this solves.”
Jason, London Big Issue vendor
This year, we are being supported by our wonderful match funding champion The Monday Charitable Trust and our amazing pledgers, who will match every £1 you donate, up to an incredible total of £14,700.
Together we have the opportunity to raise £29,400 for Big Issue vendors.
It’s a big target, but we know we can achieve it with your help.
The Covid-19 legacy remains a serious economic threat to the livelihood of our Big Issue vendors, and we have a long road out of the pandemic. Winter used to be the season where Big Issue vendors thrived, but with the death of the high-street and the rise in online shopping, they’re now struggling to get by more than ever before.
Thanks to you, they won’t feel like they are facing this alone.
