At 12pm on the 6th of February, I will be selling The Big Issue for one hour on Gordon Street, Glasgow as part of the first-ever Big Sell-Off.
Organised by Glasgow-based charity INSP (International Network of Street Papers) and The Big Issue, The Big Sell-Off aims to raise awareness of homelessness, boost Big Issue vendor morale and sales and raise funds for both INSP and The Big Issue.
Over 20 celebrities, CEOs, media executives and government ministers will be involved in the event, trying their hand at selling The Big Issue on the streets of Glasgow and Edinburgh. You can see a full list of everyone involved here.
The money raised will go towards INSP’s work supporting street papers around the world to start up, grow and develop so that they can provide homeless and unemployed people with a way to earn an income and improve their lives. It will also help The Big Issue to provide winter clothes and essentials to support its vendors at a particularly hard time of year.
