CafeSmart 2011

cafesmart logoCafeSmart will take place on Friday 5th August, during National Homeless Persons’ Week (1-7 August 2011), and will bring together cafés and their customers, to create change for some of our most disadvantaged Australians. Part proceeds, from each cup purchased on the day, will be put towards charities that tackle homelessness in Australia. The initiative is StreetSmart’s most recent project called CafeSmart whereby participating cafes have generously pledged to donate $1.00 per coffee sold to fund local grassroots projects.

Cafe Customers – is your favourite local cafe participating? If not, ask them why they haven’t signed up yet? For a list of participating cafes visit the StreetSmart website

Cafe Owners – Why sign up your cafe? For lots of good reasons, for example …..

  • you’ll be helping people who desperately need your support

  • it’s local – your donations will support people in your suburb or region

  • you’ll be helping to tackle homelessness and build stronger communities

  • it’s a unique activity– something to talk about and connect to with your customers and staff

  • it brings in potential customers to familiarise themselves thereby encouraging repeat business

  • your business will be promoted through partner databases, media and PR coverage

  • what goes around…. comes around – feel the karma!

Go on – this is important – go to and get involved
