Swans selling the big issue

Sydney Swans players will be out selling The Big Issue this week, to support the street magazine's homeless and disadvantaged vendors. Birthday boy Harry Cunningham (23 on Dec 6) and rookies Sam Murray and Tyrone Leonardis will join players from 7 other sporting clubs across three different football clubs around Australia.

You can always buy a copy every day of the week to support the disadvantaged, and today I've got mine. Each issue is worth $7, with $3.50 going back to the vendor. More than 6,500 men and women have sold The Big Issue since it was launched 20 years ago.

The Swans players will compete against the other clubs to sell the most magazines and win The Big Isssue's inaugural Footy Sales Challenge trophy. So while there's always copies to buy, you should get out there and buy one today to help the Swans boys win.


VISIT: The corner of Oxford Street and Bronte Road at Bondi Junction from 5.30-6pm on Wednesday 7 December to purchase a copy of The Big Issue from Swans Harry Cunningham, Sam Murray and Tyrone Leonardis.

The Big Issue Christmas Edition is already on sale this month, right up to Christmas day, December 25th. It's 8 pages longer than regular editions and features holiday wishes, written by Big Issue vendors, as well as a look into Australia's housing shortages and an interview with Micky Dolenz from the Monkees.

Since you're here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading The Swans Blog than ever, but we don't accept advertising, and don't want to do so in the future. Unlike many other news and media organisations, fan forums and fan media, we haven't put up a paywall, or displayed ads - we want to keep our content as open as possible.

The Swans Blog is an independent fan blog and community platform. Our content takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. We do it because we love what we do and we believe our perspective matters - because it may be your perspective too.

If everyone who reads our blog, who likes it, is supporting it, our future would be much more secure.
