After two long years, Youth Off The Streets Cup of Kindness Day is back and looking for Australia’s Kindest Café, 2022.

Clubs and cafes right across Australia are being asked to support Youth Off The Streets fundraising efforts by donating 50 cents from every tea or coffee sold, or a percentage of sales during the four day campaign.  The campaign runs from Friday 30 September until Monday 3 October 2022, and includes International Coffee Day on Saturday October 1.  It’s a great opportunity to promote your café or coffee shop and assist young people in need in your community.

The funds raised by your café will support Youth Off The Streets’ essential services for at-risk young people – from safe housing and counselling to education and training pathways, life skills programs, youth justice support and community outreach, among other services.

Club Rivers in southwestern Sydney took out the inaugural Australia’s Kindest Café title in 2020 and will launch the campaign on Friday 30 September. This year it is your chance to get on board and leverage the distinct Cup of Kindness advertising and promotional materials including print, digital and social to promote your business, sell more coffee and be recognised as a kind café or coffee shop in your community.
