The Big Issue Celebrates 21 Years

There's an extra reason to buy a copy of The Big Issue this fortnight – we're celebrating 21 years of helping people help themselves.

Since we launched in 1996, vendors have sold 11 million copies of the magazine, earning an incredible $25 million.

A special birthday edition of The Big Issue launched today to celebrate the milestone. Look out for vendors selling copies of this jam-packed edition this fortnight.

The ACT Chief Minister, Lord Mayors in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide, and Mayors around the country will hit the streets to sell the edition at various times and locations during the fortnight. Each guest seller will spend 30 minutes spruiking the magazine alongside a Big Issue vendor.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on our celebrations.
