About the Big sell

What is The Big Sell?

The Big Sell takes place from the 1st of March, 2023 and is an opportunity to help us raise funds to support the hard-working vendors of The Big Issue magazine.

Participants can harness their networks to spread the word and bolster online donations for one month through their very own donation platform.

Funds raised during The Big Sell 2022 provided vendors the opportunity to earn an additional $70,000, but the truth is our work is not over yet, with vendors still feeling the effects of reduced sales and low foot traffic.

What is it for?

All proceeds from donations will go towards supporting The Big Issue and our vendors. These vital funds will help us continue to help vendors experiencing homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage, help themselves for another 26 years and beyond. 

"Thank you - it really helped to take the pressure off, even for a little”
Geelong vendor Steve B
