The Big Issue Australia is celebrating its 20th anniversary in June and we’re proud to be part of the story.
You may be familiar with The Big Issue magazine, which is sold on the streets by homeless and disadvantaged people. Sellers buy the magazine for $3.50 and sell it for $7, keeping the difference.
The initiative has given more than 6,500 people in need the chance to earn an income in the past two decades.
Since The Big Issue launched in Australia in 1996, vendors have sold more than 10.3 million magazines. The Body Shop is a proud distribution partner of The Big Issue, with about half of all magazine sales to vendors processed through a The Body Shop retail store.
Join us in celebrating this big milestone by buying a copy of the bumper 20th anniversary edition, which hits the streets on Friday 3 June.
The Big Issue’s anniversary edition will feature 28 extra pages, making it the biggest ever edition of the magazine. It will highlight some of the best content and key achievements from the past two decades. Every magazine sold puts money in the pocket of a person in need.
The Big Issue is Australia’s longest-standing and most significant social enterprise. Along with The Big Issue street magazine, the organisation operates five additional enterprises and programs to address social issues affecting men and women in Australia. Our partnership with The Big Issue reflects our commitment to enrich the lives of economically vulnerable people around the world.
