It’s a simple idea that adds up to a big impact on the lives of people who are experiencing homelessness. StreetSmart Australia partners with restaurants, inviting diners to ‘dine out and help out’ by making a small donation on their bill of $2 or more to their bill, not even the price of a coffee or mineral water.
If you know a restaurant who are not involved, invite them to join into this wonderful initiative. It’s a very positive influence with a potential outcome that can make a pivotal difference in the lives of people who are often not able to surmount challenges other people do on a daily basis.
You can gather your work colleagues, your friends and family and dine out at the participating restaurants, adding a small donation to the bill that helps out many of those people who are doing it tough, especially at Xmas.
No one chooses to be homeless and at StreetSmart Australia all their operational expenses are funded through sponsorship partners. This allows them to give the community their pledge that 100% of their donations are distributed directly to charity recipients and those many people on the ground who help out on a daily basis.
The donation you provide should not replace any tip you would usually leave. StreetSmart Australia would want you to consider any donation over and above your tip that helps support the staff and restaurants who are supporting the initiative.
