Dine out and help out this Christmas
Stellar Concepts Australia


The popular DineSmart campaign is currently running until Tuesday 31st December, 2013.

DineSmart asks patrons at participating restaurants nationwide to add a small $2 donation to their bill.

The simple initiative has raised $2.4 million since its inception in 2003.

Journalist, television presenter and StreetSmart ambassador Sarah Wilson encourages diners to make the most of Christmas celebrations and support their neighbourhood charities in the process:

"DineSmart is such a clever campaign. We all enjoy eating out, especially during the silly season, and this is a really small but effective way to help those in need," Sarah says.

"Anyone can take part in it and make a valuable contribution. It can be as simple as organising your annual work Christmas party at a StreetSmart restaurant, or booking a table with a group of friends," Sarah added.

The brain child of StreetSmart, this campaign raises much-needed funds for local grassroots charities supporting homelessness.

All collected funds are donated directly to support homeless refuges and charities selected based on their need and proximity to participating restaurants.

This campaign is particularly timely as people living on the streets can find life tougher than ever during the holiday period

Restaurants participating in DineSmart this year include the highly-regarded Longrain, The Apollo, Cafe Sydney, Saké Restaurant & Bar, Cutler & Co Dining Room & Bar, Chin Chin, Ezard, Mecca Bah, Olé, Next Door Kitchen & Bar and many more across Australia.

A complete list of participating restaurants can be viewed here.

Donations can be made at any time on the StreetSmart website.
