A subscription to The Big Issue - a fortnightly magazine - costs less than $4 a week and you will provide homeless and disadvantaged women with paid work in a safe, secure and rewarding environment. Every 100 subscriptions sold helps employ one woman who will personally pack and sort magazines ready to be delivered every fortnight. CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF THE BIG ISSUE In 2021 The Big Issue will celebrate 25 years, marking the quarter-century milestone with a very special bumper birthday magazine edition featuring stories from our vendors, customers, partners, contributors and more. From our humble beginnings on the steps of Flinders Street Station till now, we reflect on our history, our people and our community, celebrating 25 years of doing what we do best - helping people help themselves. The Big Issue magazine was launched in Melbourne in 1996 and has since expanded to six states and territories with hundreds of vendors proudly donning the iconic Big Issue fluoro vest every day. Since its first edition, more than 7000 vendors have sold 13 million copies of the magazine, to a significant readership of over 250,000 people per year - putting $32 million into the pockets of those living on the margins. We're inviting you to celebrate this moment with us by visiting a vendor, purchasing a commemorative 25th magazine and jumping online to watch our 25 Years Big video. Thank you for your support!
