CafeSmart is an annual, one-day fundraising initiative that supports local not-for-profit organisations and Australians in need.

To help, just buy a coffee on August 9 at one of 800-plus participating cafes across Australia. Each cafe donates $1 from every coffee sold on the day. Last year the initiative raised an impressive $238,720 with this simple idea.

The full list of participating cafes is available here.
