The Big Issue is turning 20 and we wanted to celebrate – every month of the year!
The Big Issue 2016 Anniversary Calendar will be available nationally on 26th October! In June next year, The Big Issue will turn 20, but we didn’t want to wait until then to celebrate. So, for the 2016 calendar, we look back over two decades of The Big Issue, and celebrate the diverse community that has made this possible for so long.
Cartoonist Andrew Weldon showcases cartoons from some special editions over the years, including his first ever cartoon in Edition #1!
The calendar also features profiles of some veteran vendors from all around the country, sharing what The Big Issue has meant, and still means, to them. It’s heartwarming, hilarious and will look great hanging on your wall. It’s also a fantastic Christmas present at just $9, with half going straight into the pocket of your vendor. Making it a socially concious gift choice this festive season - perfect for kris kringle!
This year, our featured vendors are Michelle from the ACT, Bill from New South Wales, Ronnie from Queensland, Brian W from South Australia, Carol from Victoria and Cliff from Western Australia.
