Celebrating a big milestone

We're celebrating a big milestone for the men and women who sell The Big Issue around Australia. 

Vendors have now earned $25 million since the magazine launched in 1996.

We'd like to say a big thank you to our readers for buying more than 10 million magazines and supporting homeless and disadvantaged people who are working to improve their lives.

Vendors buy copies of The Big Issue for $3.50 and sell them for $7, earning a meaningful income.

If you've never bought a Big Issue before, look out for vendors selling the latest edition. Every copy sold puts money in a vendor's pocket.

Vendors come to The Big Issue from a wide range of backgrounds. Every vendor has a different story, but all are striving to improve their lives. Read some of their moving stories here
