Need a stocking filler with a difference? Buying a subscription to The Big Issue magazine not only provides a good Christmas gift for friends and family, but also supports homeless and disadvantaged women around the country.
Vulnerable women are employed to personally sort and pack copies of the magazine for dispatch to subscribers each fortnight, giving these women an income, support and employment pathways for the future.
Since the Women’s Subscription Enterprise was launched in 2010, more than 100 women have been employed, packing over 200,000 magazines.
For every 100 subscriptions we sell, we can employ one women through the initiative.
The Big Issue has a special four-month subscription offer for Christmas, which includes eight magazines for $49, to support the Women’s Subscription Enterprise. Subscriptions can be purchased here.
Corporate organisations and businesses interested in taking out multiple subscriptions can contact us on (03) 9663 4533.
