International Towers is a proud subscriber to homeless champion The Big Issue, which aims to positively impact those facing homelessness, disadvantage and marginalisation, by providing meaningful work opportunities and a connection with the community.
The Big Issue is best known for its fortnightly magazine sold by street vendors across Australia. Vendors purchase each magazine for $4.50 and sell it for $9, earning a meaningful income. Other programs run by The Big Issue include our Women’s Workforce, Community Street Soccer Program, The Big Issue Classroom and Homes for Homes.
If you'd like to help out Australia's homeless, visit your local vendor and purchase a copy of The Big Issue magazine, or better still subscribe. You can directly donate to The Big Issue through their website or PayPal. And now you can use your property to help create housing for those in need, to learn more check out Homes for Homes.
