LOVE your coffee?

Here's your chance to drink coffee and do good at the same time.

On Friday, June 7, Street Smart Australia has organised CafeSmart 2013 when participating cafes Australia-wide will donate $1 for every coffee they sell.  

There are 191 cafes taking part at last count.

``Coffee aficionados are also encouraged to match their donation with your own $1 and 100% of these funds will then go to fund local projects,'' director Adam Robinson said.

There are many ways to make CafeSmart 2013 as successful as possible.

Perhaps organise your team meeting at your favourite cafe, catch up with friends over a cuppa and know that your coffee is helping grassroots projects nearby.
Enter the photo competition and win a prize or organise your own coffee break and raise funds.

Participating cafes include Bonbons Bakery, 65 Degrees, De Clieu, First Pour, Miss Marmalade, St Ali, Phoenix on Rob Roy Cafe, Streat, Two Birds One Stone and many more, so choose your favourite brew at your favourite cafe.
