Big Issue vendors are doing Bridge to Brisbane to raise funds

A team of incredible Big Issue street vendors are getting ready to lace up for the 2018 Bridge to Brisbane on Sunday 26 August.

Taking on this challenge is a big deal for street vendors, who come from backgrounds of homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage. But they have signed to be part of #TeamBigIssue because they want to raise money for the organisation that has changed their lives.

As they put it, selling The Big Issue gives people who are homeless or doing it tough for any reason the chance to get back on their feet.

Vendors run their own business, earn an income and lift themselves out of poverty. They also improve their confidence and self-esteem, get to know their customers and become part of a community.

Now they want to give back to The Big Issue, and they need supporters to help them cross the Bridge to Brisbane.

All donations raised will support the work of The Big Issue in Queensland – and people who need a hand up.

Donate to #TeamBigIssue now. Gifts $2 and over are tax deductible.
