Did you know that our company GobblerCo runs a micro-entrepreneurship programme called TOWKAY to increase the financial independence of persons with disabilities and limited income? Our Towkays are approved to run mini businesses selling various non-perishable items at SBS Transit Bus and MRT interchanges in Singapore.
.
After undergoing free training sponsored by us, we helped our newest Towkay Alex to set-up his business and placed him at Serangoon MRT. In the past few weeks, Alex has been able to earn a decent income - thanks to commuters like you who have been supporting him! If you're at Serangoon MRT, do stop by Alex's stall to say hello and buy some goodies from him!

Check out this incredible – life-size! – portrait of Bath Big Issue vendor Ian and his dog Boycie by @thompsonboyce_artist. The artist’s attention turned to Ian to show people a side of Big Issue vendors that they may not normally see. “You walk past them without giving them a second thought,” Adrian said. “I thought this drawing of Ian and Boycie would mean that they can be seen and their story can be told. It was all about trying to get people to stop have a look and take notice. Because, for many, when they see the tabard the have ideas about people without knowing the full story.”

Just the ticket!

Commuters and visitors can now buy their copy of The Big Issue at Edinburgh Waverley with the launch of the first official pitch inside a Scottish station.

Vendor Viorel, who is fluent in English, Romanian, French, Italian, Hungarian and Dutch, is delighted with his new platform. “Moving to the station has been very good so far and I have already sold plenty of magazines, up to 40 on some days,” he said. “The people working at Waverley have really helped me and I’m starting to get a good relationship with the customers too.”

Meet Gary, who sells The Big Issue in Saltburn... "Before I sold The Big Issue I was begging on the streets of Brighton. I’d left children’s homes at 16 and moved straight into a bedsit, but within a month and a half I’d lost it because I had no clue how to live on my own. I ended up travelling around and became homeless. One day when I was begging I saw a lad selling The Big Issue, so I got myself a pitch. I’ve done all sorts of other jobs – abattoirs, factories, I’ve been a mechanic, an auditor and a gardener – but I enjoy The Big Issue most. It gives you freedom. Selling the magazine feels a lot different to begging. I couldn’t go back on the street and beg, there’s no way. That was degrading and horrible. The Big Issue is positive and gives me a sense of being part of society rather than on the edge of it."

This is the Australian government’s definition of the word ‘mateship’ in its official resources - “Australia has a strong tradition of mateship where people help and receive help from others voluntarily, especially in times of adversity… A mate can be a spouse, partner, brother, sister, daughter, son or a friend. A mate can also be a total stranger.” Aussies are a caring lot & we know how to rise up & help a mate out when they need a hand up! Our farming mates are doing it so bloody tough, so it was time to show our mates we care ❤️ The pod team are proud to have ‘dug’ deep & donated to @buyabale
🐄🐖🐑 to help our Aussie farmers!
