The Urban Coffe House in Busselton joins hundreds of roasters and cafes around Australia which will donate $1 from every coffee they sell on Friday August 9 to CafeSmart.

CafeSmart helps fund homelessness services and have raised more than $5 million which has funded 1,891 projects for 615 organisations throughout Australia.

Donations are fed back into projects as close to where they were raised as possible and targeted smaller services aimed at people experiencing homelessness.

Urban Coffee House owner Rheannan Sweeney said on the day they would donate $1 from every coffee sold to CafeSmart along with any customer tips they received.

"We have been doing this initiative for 10 years and we are hoping to get as many people in to the store to buy coffee as we can," she said.
