Five reasons to subscribe to The Big Issue this Mother's Day

Forget mugs and flowers for Mother's Day this Sunday, spoil your mum with a gift that's sure to give her the warm and fuzzies.

As the woman who raised you, put up with you through your teenage years and is probably still your biggest fan – she deserves something a little bit special on her day.

Here are five reasons why a subscription to The Big Issue ticks the box.

1. It's a magazine your mum will love

The Big Issue is a lively, informative and often cheeky general-interest magazine. We cover current affairs, arts, lifestyle, entertainment, news and opinion. Already this year, we've featured interviews with Magda Szubanski, Ai Weiwei, Wes Anderson, David Attenborough, Mem Fox and some of our country's funniest comedians.


2. Your gift supports women in need

Every Big Issue subscription helps to employ and empower homeless and disadvantaged women who want to work but don't feel safe selling the magazine on the street. The Women's Subscription Enterprise employs women to pack the magazine for distribution to subscribers, providing them safe and secure employment, as well as access to training, mentoring and support.

3. Mum gets a free KeepCup

Because your mum deserves the ultimate gift this Mother's Day, we're giving away a free KeepCup with every subscription sold until the end of Sunday. Your mum will feel even better about indulging in some me time, knowing her magazine and coffee are both doing good in the world.

4. Subscribing is easy

If you've left Mother's Day gift buying to the last minute, don't panic! Buying your mum a subscription to The Big Issue is as quick and easy as jumping online. She never has to know you put your order in on Sunday morning.

5. It's the gift that keeps on giving

The Big Issue will be delivered to your mum's letter box every fortnight, carefully hand packed by one of the women she's helping to employ. That means all year round she'll be reminded of just how much you love her.
