The Big Issue gift cards – the answer to all your gifting needs


The Big Issue has just launched its gift card – in time for the giving season but available at any time of the year. Instead of spending hours trawling the malls or the internet for the perfect birthday/wedding/Xmas/housewarming/congratulations present for your boss/friend/secretary/client /mother-in-law/second cousin, simply…

  • deposit the amount you would have spent into The Big Issue’s bank account (Std Bank, current account number 072027282, reference GIFTCARD/yourname), and
  • email POP (proof of payment) together with your name and the name of the person in whose name you made the donation to

We’ll send you a personalised gift card (similar to the image you see below) to print or email to the person you’ve honoured by supporting the ongoing work of The Big Issue.

It’s that easy! What are you waiting for?
