Challenge

The Big Issue Challenge

Get your colleagues together and join us in helping people help themselves.

Your task is simple: to help your vendor sell as many magazines as possible!

Firstly, you will hear from a Big Issue vendor as they tell you about their life experiences, what brought them to The Big Issue and the impact it has had on their life in an informative session on homelessness and disadvantage.

After splitting into teams, you will then brainstorm ideas and prepare a sales campaign before hitting the street alongside a vendor to sell as many copies as possible during your allocated time.

Who will assist their vendor to sell the most magazines and help make a difference in their lives?

The Big Issue Challenge includes:

  • A unique experience on the streets with high social impact
  • An informative session with a representative from The Big Issue and a vendor
  • An inspiring team of vendors to work with on the street
  • All equipment and tools

The Big Issue Challenge runs in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra.
