Back in the day, I used to get my caffeine hit from a can of Red Bull on most days (sometimes I still do), but during these cold Winter days and nights, for me, nothing beats a hot cup of coffee. Not only does it wake me up, but it warms me up just as much too! 🙂
Do you love to drink coffee?
Do you want to put that money that you spend on a cup of coffee towards a good cause?
I know what you’re thinking, ‘How will my cup of coffee help a good cause?’
Well, I have the answer.
This Friday, 10th August, CaféSmart will bring together coffee roasters, cafés, and coffee lovers (myself included) around the country to help the homeless.
The concept is simple:
Grab a coffee at one of these participating cafés, and $1.00 from your cuppa will generously be donated to fund local projects and to aid small grassroots services helping people who are less fortunate.
Cafés will be donating $1 for every coffee they sell on the day.
CaféSmart ambassador and journalist Sarah Wilson, however, suggests the event isn’t just about raising money. “CaféSmart will be an up-close and meaningful way for cafés and their customers to connect with their local community to help people for whom a latté is a luxury.”
So what are you waiting for? Go in search of you nearest participating café or make the trip to somewhere new for your favourite brew and invite a friend or two! (*Rhyming that last sentence was unintentional.)
