“He aha te mea nui o te ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata,”

Meaning “What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”

All Heart Store is a profit-for-purpose enterprise of Hope and Restoring Dignity. Today, within this report, we share that essence with you, offering insight into the incredible narrative that defines us. All Heart Store embodies the connectedness of positive social impact and environmental stewardship and exemplifies the power of circular solutions in promoting sustainability and community well-being. Together, we can rethink waste, resource recovery, and reshape a more sustainable Aotearoa.

I’d like to personally acknowledge our community partners, volunteers, and staff, for joining with us on this transformative journey. The stories and testimonies in this report speak volumes to the importance of our Kaupapa and our values resonate in every endeavour: people first, planet conscious, and transformation. Through the creation of employment, volunteerism, and training opportunities. We are more than a Second-hand Store; our impact reaches lives, communities, and society. Today, we stand united by five impactful All Heart Stores, symbolizing local benefit and community empowerment across regions all embracing circularity as a pathway to change. As you dive into this report, you become an integral part of this narrative.

Let’s together craft a future that fills us with pride—a future where our actions today lay the foundation for a better tomorrow. Through conscious shopping, let us lead by example, revealing the path towards a brighter, more compassionate world.
