Street Smart

With the festive season fast approaching it's nice to think about giving back and what better time than when you are dining out enjoying yourself with friends.

For the six weeks in the lead-up to Christmas, StreetSmart partners with restaurants to ask diners to make a small donation to StreetSmart on their bill. Every table is asked to add $2 or more to their bill, not even the price of a coffee or mineral water. It’s a simple idea that adds up to a big impact on the lives of people who are homeless.

StreetSmart is a unique bridge between the community and small, grassroots agencies that assist people experiencing homelessness. They support critical services and emergency aid as well as projects that promote social inclusion, empowerment and sustainable change for people who are homeless. When money is raised from the public through Streetsmart fundraising events, 100 per cent of donations are distributed in the form of grants. To date, over $485,000 has been raised and distributed.
