CafeSmart – Helping The Homeless – UPDATE
Posted by TheRev
HELP FROM THE GROUND UP
On FRIDAY AUGUST 5th CafeSmart will bring together cafes and coffee drinkers around the country to help people who are homeless. Participating cafes will generously donate $1.00 per coffee sold to fund local projects. We want our supporters to take a simple action and buy their coffees on the 5th at participating Cafes and consider making an extra donation online. “Grab a coffee and help the homeless” is something we can all do.
CafeSmart will take place during National Homeless Persons’ Week, 1-7 August 2011, and will bring together café owners, staff and their customers, to create change in local communities. StreetSmart is also teaming up with coffee roasters around Australia who will be supporting cafes through supplying discounted coffee beans on the day.
Now that the nomination date for cafés has closed, we can confirm that only three South Australian Cafés have signed up for CafeSmart – which between you, men and your next cup of coffee – is a pretty poor effort. But then I guess we should ask, how many were asked to sign up? How many actually knew about it? Anyway, on Friday August 5th – make sure you get out and about and purchase a coffee from either:
- Bar9 – 96 Glen Osmond Road, Eastside, SA, 5063 – click HERE for previous review
- The Organic Market & Café – 5 Druid Avenue, Stirling, SA, 5152 – click HERE for previous review
- Caffeteca, 53 Tynte Street, North Adelaide, SA, 5006 – which is yet to be reviewed, although it is a café I used to go to every day when I worked next door – but back then it was the Tynte Street Deli….
