Projects that provide critical services and emergency aid as well as promoting social inclusion, empowerment and sustainable change for people who are homeless or at risk. 100% of donations raised through Streetsmart events are distributed in the form of grants. To date they have raised $3,031,680 and supported 843 grassroots projects.  Like what they do on facebook or follow them on twitter.  Dont forget to post a selfie Friday using hashtag #drinkcoffeedogood and donate direct to the cause here.
