The coffee community recently reunited once again when StreetSmart Australia’s annual CafeSmart campaign kicked off to combat homelessness.
Last Friday 9 August, participating cafes donated $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, and personally funded 1823 projects for 605 organisations. These smaller organisations are embedded within local communities and need help to respond to the communities needs
This year the charity launched a new initiative, CafeSmart in the workplace, enabling workplaces to get involved during the CafeSmart week.
