Hi miz smiley - smiley

Nice start on an interesting topic. Maybe you could include The Big Issue in the title, possibly 'John Bird, Founder of The Big Issue - UK'

More inforation on both John and The Big Issue would be good. There's some interesting stuff here http://www.bigissue.com/bigissue.html

Dig around a bit, see what else you can find. But, remember you need to translate it into your own words, and not copy from another source. smiley - oksmiley - smiley

Yes this'll be a good entry, and one we should have onboard, but as the others have said, it needs expanding.

You could always put say how much the magazine has become part of British life, is reflected in it having becoming a recognisable joke in its own right.. "Knock Knock." - "Who's there ?" - "Biggish." - Biggish who ?" - "Oh I'm sorry I don't have any change."

Try to expand on him a little bit more

http://society.guardian.co.uk/homelessness/story/0,8150,1516524,00.html

You could use some of his quote, but don't forget to acknowledge where you get them from.

See if you can find out more about his home life. If not, then a paragraph stating he appears to be very private about his home life would help.

The Big Issue is big business through out the country. Could it collect more donations than anyother charity?

These are just ideas, you don't have to use them.

Should i rewrite it all?

If you think a rewrite would make it easier to include the suggested things, then maybe, if not, just add some more info smiley - smiley
