This week Australians spent over $96 MILLION betting on the Melbourne Cup! Just that one horse race raked in that amount of money. If you can have a flutter on the gee gees then I think you can spare a few dollars to help StreetSmart help the homeless.
You can donate direct here or over the coming weeks of the silly season dine out at one of the restaurants that have signed up to collect donations for StreetSmart. If you're planning nights out between now and Christmas make sure you book one of the restaurants on the list and ensure your guests bring some extra dollars to donate.
The Melbourne event started in 2003 and went from raising over $16,000 in that first year to over $260,000 in 2008! I think YOU should get behind this idea in 2009 and do your bit for someone not as fortunate as yourself. Rest assured, 100% of your money will go to those in need.
There are StreetSmart events in the UK, USA and South Africa as well as Australia, so check your hometown lists if you live in any of these countries.
Dine out...help out and enjoy!
