Introducing our new Giveback Program Partner,
The Australian Wildlife Conservancy.
This month you voted for causes close to your heart and we listened.
At Just be. Apparel we aim to make a difference and our Give Back Program allows us to help small and large scale efforts around the globe. This time, we’re staying local..
Australia is home to more species than any other developed country! But... we also have the worst mammal extinction rate in the world and a very high proportion of our surviving animals and plants (over 1,700 species) are listed as threatened with extinction. That’s where The Australian Wildlife Conservancy steps in!
For over 10 years, the experts at the AWC have been acquiring land and partnering with landowners to set up sanctuaries and protect the natural habitats of wallabies, numbats, bilbies, finches and wrens all across the country.
Whilst all our previous Giveback Program Partners have been humanitarian causes, naturally once we found out about AWC’s efforts, we wanted to help our furry friends out!
Over the next 6 months, for every purchase over $20, we will donate $3 to AWC on your behalf. We were so excited when our loyal customers raised over $300 for our last partner the Cambodian Children's Fund. Now is the time to buy that t-shirt or those pants you’ve been eyeing off and help us, help our native wildlife!

2016 GIVEBACK PARTNERS
In 2004, Scott Neeson gave up his Hollywood dream career to establish CCF and has been transforming Cambodia's most impoverished kids into tomorrow's leaders ever since. With every purchase of $20 or more, we will donate $3 to this excellent cause
Our dedication to the health and sustainability of the planet extends beyond how our products are made and the community at large. Giving back is the basis of what we are about and gets up in the morning eager to go to work.
As strong believers in doing business in a sustainable and environmentally conscious way, we know that there is a much bigger picture than just making a profit. Everything we do has some impact in some way on our planet. More than ever it is easy to see the imbalances and sufferings on both a local and global level. Whether it's disease, environmental disaster or poverty, we all have the potential to contribute to help those in need and heal our world.
Our Giveback Program chooses a different, unique Giving Partner for a 6 month period. With the aim to be fair and share the love we leave it up to our customers to nominate a new giving partner for the next period. Like a lottery, we will hand draw a winner. However we will not remove any of the nominations and will be put into the next and future draws. Each charity or social program must be a officially registered organisation otherwise will not be eligible.
Each purchase will help someone in need including wildlife. For every purchase over $20, we will donate, on your behalf $3 to the nominated charity/social or environmental cause.
Between January and June 2016 with the help of our customers, we supported the
Fred Hollows Foundation.
The selfless Doctor Fred Hollows worked tirelessly for decades with the help of other volunteer doctors to save and restore the sight of over 2 million people worldwide including Africa, Asia and to the Indigenous community right here in Australia.
With over 32 million people in world who are needlessly blind, we celebrate the difference the Fred Hollows Foundation is making in the international community.

WA BUSHFIRE APPEAL
During January 2016 we ran a campaign to raise money to help raise money for the people and animals who suffered from the devastating fires in the Southwest of Western Australia. We donated 25% of sales in January to the WA BUSHFIRE APPEAL to aid the rebuilding of lives and rescue and recovery of livestock after the entire town of Waroona was destroyed by bushfires.
We were moved by stories of numerous people donating their cars to the victims who lost everything and the relocation of horses and other animals that managed to escape.
Thank you to all those who purchased Just be. Apparel in January and helped to raise over $500.
