It’s that awesome time of year again when coffee goes to work to help those in need. CafeSmart is a national movement to create awareness and raise funds for the homeless. It’s such a simple idea with such a profound impact on all it touches.

What is CafeSmart?

CafeSmart was born out of the StreetSmart organisation – a non-profit with one goal… to combat homelessness in Australia. Born in 2003, StreetSmart aims to support smaller charities that are actually at the front line of homelessness in their own communities through projects like CafeSmart, DineSmart and RunSmart.

All money raised through these initiatives will go to these smaller organisations, with local cafes having a local impact so they can actually see how their donations are making a real difference in their community.

When is CafeSmart?

On Friday August 4 2017, all registered cafes will be donating $1 from all coffee sold to their local charity. With only one week to go, there are already over 600 cafes signed up for this incredible cause. So make sure you check out the CafeSmart website, pick out your local cafe and head down for a latte or two on the big day.

Now if you just can’t make it to a cafe that day, don’t despair – you can actually donate a coffee (click here to donate)! Choose to contribute one, two or even 12 coffees (if you’re feeling super-generous) or, really get involved by committing to donating monthly. The great thing about this organisation is that 100% of funds go directly to the charities on the ground – so you know it’s going to make a huge difference.

From creating her own ‘Ozzie Mozzie Editorial’ newspaper when she was 10 to writing for ‘The Sydney Morning Herald’, Emma has always loved to write. She spends her time looking after her two kids and tapping away at the keyboard blogging at, writing for Howards Storage World and of course, for Sacred Grounds Organic. Her love of a good small cappuccino (with one sugar!) and social justice makes this a match made in heaven. Emma loves a good book, travelling and hanging at the beach with her little crew.
