On Friday 5 August cafes with a social conscience right around Australia – serving great coffee of course – will donate $1.00 per coffee sold to fund local projects to help homeless people.
About This Project
‘a unique bridge between those that want to help people experiencing homelessness and the grassroots agencies that are changing lives’
StreetSmart is also teaming up with coffee roasters around Australia who will be supporting cafes through supplying discounted coffee beans on the day.
‘Grab a coffee and help the homeless’ is something we can all do.
How Will The Funds Be Used?
