Did you know that life expectancy if you're living rough on the streets of London is only 46 years old?
The Big Issue helps people to help themselves. By buying magazines for £1 and selling them for £2, vendors have a chance to make a living and a way off the street. I want to help The Big Issue help more homeless peole to help themselves.
So - I’ve signed up for the London to Paris bike ride 2011.
I’ll be cycling 230 miles over 3 days, 90 miles of which will be in one day, and it's all on behalf of The Big Issue Foundation.
The Big Issue Foundation is dedicated to the well being of Big Issue Vendors, working with over 2900 individuals across the UK. Their skilled staff work one to one with vendors, tackling issues ranging from health and accommodation through to money management and aspirations.
The Big Issue Foundation is about taking control, moving forward, gaining independence and rebuilding lives. They exist to enable vendors to continue on their journey away from homelessness.

So far the tech-media community in London have helped me raise over £1000! Please help push this amount higher.
