On Friday, August 9th 2019 Alowishus in Bundaberg and Maryborough will once again be joining hundreds of cafes and coffee roasters for CaféSmart, a united effort to help homeless people in communities around Australia.
CaféSmart is an initiative of the great people at StreetSmart – Action Against Homelessness
Why We Love Being Part of CaféSmart
On any given night in Australia over 115,000 people are homeless – often through circumstances beyond their control. We believe everyone should have a safe and secure place to call home.
The funds raised through CaféSmart come back to local service providers such as Edon Place Women’s Shelter here in Bundaberg. This is a way to make a real difference in our local community at the grassroots level.
We have been involved for eight years now. Last year we raised $1113.70 between both stores which came back to help people in Bundaberg and Maryborough.
It’s Super Easy to Help Out
Do you like to drink our coffee?
We are going to assume that’s a ‘Yes’. So, all you need to do is buy a coffee (or any other hot drink) on August 9 th and we will give $1 to CaféSmart.
Can you afford an extra dollar?
You don’t have to, but we will be asking customers if they’d like to match our dollar with one of their own.
It’s that easy.
What Else Are We Doing?
The theme colour for CaféSmart is yellow, so to help raise awareness we will be dressing in yellow.
But we won’t stop there… we will have yellow cupcakes for sale with $1 from each of them also going to CaféSmart also.
Finally, Post Your Pics on Social Media
On the day, you can help let others know about this important cause by posting your coffee and cupcakes with the hashtag #helpyourhood
Let’s do something together to help the vulnerable in our community. We’d love to see you for coffee, a cupcake, or both on Friday, August 9th 2019.
