Back for its second year, StreetSmart is once again urging coffee drinkers to help support Australia’s homeless. On Friday August 10, $1 from every coffee sold at a participating CafeSmart cafe or coffee roaster will be donated to a variety of community-based programs to help those without a permanent roof over their heads.

Last year, 175 cafes from across Australia raised $47,477 – a figure that, while fantastic, organisers hope to smash this year. Participating Sydney cafes will have the challenge of attempting to beat last year’s national and NSW/ACT champions Mecca Espresso.

Cafes such as Bean Drinking, Don Campos, Single Origin Roasters and Little Queen Cafe have already signed up, but there’s still plenty of time to join. So if your cafe would like to lend its support to invaluable homelessness programs in your local community, visit the StreetSmart website, where you can also download a map featuring all of the participating venues.

Use your caffeine addiction for good, not evil, and gather your friends for a CafeSmart coffee this August.

CafeSmart will take place on Friday August 10.
