The Company Sets a Social Entrepreneurship Example by Giving Back to the Society and Planet Earth


Adelaide, South Australia – Just as the much-awaited holiday season is around the corner, ecommerce newbie Store with a Heart is all set to make a mark in the Australian online marketplace by not only spreading joy through a range of quality products but also contributing to two of the most significant causes of the contemporary world – hunger and sustainability. Store with a Heart – whose mission is to make a difference with every gift – is revolutionising the traditional social entrepreneurship definition by working towards enriching humanity and the environment while ensuring excellence in service and performance and absolute value for money.

Headquartered in Adelaide, Store with a Heart operates across the globe and offers a wide variety of gifts ranging from clothing to flowers, home appliances to gift cards, collectibles to electronic gadgets. In partnership with Pledgeling whose purpose is to empower impact by connecting brands and consumers to a cause, Store with a Heart allows shoppers to help end world hunger by buying its featured products while it also donates a portion of each purchase to feeding the hungry. Additionally, consumers can directly make a donation in their The Difference You Make page to provide food to those in need.

Along with facilitating the abolition of world hunger, Store with a Heart also aims at improving sustainability. It offers 100% environment-friendly zero-emission shipping to almost anywhere in the world, free of cost. The items sold on its website also include organic and ethical gifts which add to ecological balance.

“The idea of fostering innovative practices in the online shopping platform led to the inception of Store with a Heart. We are not just a profit-making enterprise, but we also want to give back to the society in one way or another,” says Esperanza Pretila, founder of Store with a Heart. “With every gift, we provide our customers with an avenue to make a difference by not only gifting recipients but also to our planet, the rest of us, and future generations,” she adds.

According to The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2019 report, about 821 million people in the world were undernourished in 2018 and one in nine people do not get enough food to lead a healthy lifestyle. Mother Nature, on the other hand, is bearing the brunt of greenhouse gas emissions from ships that is a major contributor to global warming.
