The coffee community is set to reunite once again with StreetSmart Australia’s annual CafeSmart campaign to help combat homelessness on 9 August.
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 who are at risk or are homeless.
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 charity is launching a new initiative, CafeSmart in the workplace, enabling workplaces to get involved during the CafeSmart week. Workplaces can hold a bake sale, coffee morning, or ask for donations for coffee that’s usually.
CafeSmart hopes 2019 will be its biggest, record breaking year yet.
