In association with aid organization Be A Hero Australia, BIGshop is providing underprivileged men, women and children in Thailand, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, Manilla, Kenya, Zambia and Zimbabwe with the unique opportunity to earn a sustainable income through the BIGshops' Hero Shop .
Hero Shop is an online shopping store on the BIGshop site where Australians can purchase unique hand-crafted clothing, jewellery, ceramics, furniture, and much more made by underprivileged people in third world countries.

All Heroshop items are shipped to customers from a Brisbane warehouse and the Hero Shop is maintained by a small group of volunteers. BIGshop technology handles the customer's payment, instantly passing the money from purchases onto the Be A Hero Australia organization.
