The coffee community is set to reunite once again with StreetSmart Australia’s annual CafeSmart campaign to help combat homelessness, to begin on 9 August 2019.
Participating cafés donate $1 from every coffee sold, directly supporting smaller grassroots homeless charities.
CafeSmart aims to help break the mould of prejudice surrounding homelessness and works to support those are at risk or who are homeless.
Excluding donations, StreetSmart has raised $5 million since commencing in 2003, personally funded 1823 projects for 605 organisations. StreetSmart Australia operates at a local level to fund critical services. These smaller organisations are embedded within local communities and need help to respond to the communities needs
This year the company is launching a new inititive, CafeSmart in the workplace, enabling workplaces to get involved during the CafeSmart week. Workplaces can donate personally to the cause every time an employee purchases a coffee.
CafeSmart says 2019 will be its biggest, record breaking year yet.
