In desperate need of 20-20 vision? The Big Issue 2020 Calendar has you covered, on sale now!

This year’s calendar celebrates “Great Mates”, those close bonds between many Big Issue magazine vendors. The calendar features six stories of vendor friends from all over Australia, and as always hilarious cartoons by Andrew Weldon.

Amy Hetherington, The Big Issue editor, speaks about the motivation behind this year’s theme:

“The Big Issue doesn’t just offer people meaningful work opportunities. For many who sell the magazine, The Big Issue is also a community. The relationships vendors build with one another can be as important as the money they’re earning – increasing their self-esteem and social connections.

“This year we wanted to showcase these positive friendships and connections that many vendors share. Knowing there’s someone you can count on, even in the toughest of times, can make the world of difference.”

The Big Issue vendors purchase the calendar for $5 and sell it for $10, earning a meaningful income. Selling alongside the magazine, this purchase is a great boost for vendors around the Christmas and holiday period.

Make sure to pick up a calendar as soon as possible – its days are numbered! Pick up a copy from your vendor or visit our online shop.
