The Reject Shop Foundation was launched in June 2014 as an integral part of The Reject Shop’s commitment to give back to the communities where we operate and where our team members live. 

Recently, we reviewed charity partners to support that align with our values and mission, and could create a meaningful impact in the communities in which we serve. 

We narrowed down our search to three charities and gave our team members across the business an opportunity to vote on which of these charities The Reject Shop should partner with. 

Our teams have chosen to support LIVIN; an organisation that delivers mental health education in schools across the country, promoting positive mental health and well-being for people via early education and awareness programs.

By supporting LIVIN, we are joining a community that is working to reduce the stigma of mental health while improving mental fitness through early intervention and prevention initiatives. 

Donations will go directly towards funding the LIVINWell In-Schools Program and also help train new facilitators to provide valuable resources to students nationally.

Who Are LIVIN?

LIVIN is an organisation that aims to: 

  • Proactively lead and deliver mental health education in schools and workplaces around the country;
  • promote positive mental health and well-being for people through early education and awareness programs;
  • connect with people through innovative means;
  • create a brand-led movement that people can relate to and build an enduring relationship with;
  • increase help-seeking behaviours; and
  • create communities around Australia who lead and champion LIVIN’s vision.


LIVIN was chosen by our teams.  Three charities were presented to our team members and LIVIN resonated with our team members the most.

We are joining a community that was started by family for families and the LIVIN community is now an extension of our family at The Reject Shop.  

Although the LIVINWell program is offered to schools, free of charge, it still costs the LIVIN team on average, $683 to facilitate each program. Every dollar raised assists LIVIN in delivering these programs to our schools.

Far too many young Australians are struggling with their mental health, and we are proud to be partnering with such a great organisation that works so hard to combat this.

How We Will Support?

  • Every amount raised, no matter how big or small, could help kickstart potentially life-changing conversations surrounding mental health.
  • All team members are encouraged to help by participating in Workplace Giving 

We truly believe that our team members at The Reject Shop, will make wonderful LIVIN ambassadors and bring meaning and purpose to supporting a charitable organisation dedicated to improving the lives of young Australians.

At LIVIN, and with the help of all of us at The Reject Shop, we want to create a world where everyone understands and accepts that ‘It Ain’t Weak to Speak.’
