Help StreetSmart help out
In Dickens days, Christmas was about helping out the poor and needy, showing a little kindness and making peace.
These days we’re rushing around like mad, partaking in shop-around-the-clock and maxing out our cards.
StreetSmart started in the UK by a group of restauranteurs who wanted to help out the homeles, pretty basic concept – 6 weeks before Christmas, participating restaurants ask their diners to support the campaign by making a voluntary donation $2+ at the end of their meal.
StreetSmart Australia has been operating in Melbourne since 2003 – 100% of donations go to the homeless – keeping it local.
Did you know that in Australia 35% of the homeless live outside the metro region?
I’m sure between now and Christmas you’ll be heading out to enjoy a meal with friends and family.
