A Coffee Cart To Change Lives by Pozible, Australia crowdfunding platform

1448851531

 

When we learnt that tonight (and every night), over 40,000 young people currently experienced homelessness in Australia, we just couldn’t understand how this was possible. And we sat around wondering why somebody didn’t do something about it.

Then we realised that we are somebody.

In 2014, two brothers from Melbourne had an idea: what if we could leverage the power of food to change the world?

And so Crêpes for Change was born – Australia’s first non-profit crêpe food truck.
We hustled hard to get it off the ground and built it from scratch. And in our first few months of operating, we’ve already raised over $40,000 in revenue that will be used to eliminate youth homelessness in Australia.

But we need to GROW to increase our impact and help more people. Help us build the CFC Coffee Cart!
You can be part of something great, something big.

We’ve noticed a huge demand for coffee-only events. It will only cost us $7,500 to build, but will allow us to bring in an extra $50,000 – $70,000 in revenue annually to be used in achieving our goal of eliminating youth homelessness in Australia.

With endorsements from the likes of Broadsheet, the Age and the Daily Mail – we’ve grown significantly and want to take it to the next step. A coffee cart makes perfect sense given we already have a professional coffee machine, pro bono architects and trained baristas ready to go.



We’ll be doing the hard labour ourselves and minimising our costs wherever we can, but we need YOU to make it happen. We’d appreciate anything you can spare – we promise to make great use of it and deliver some serious bang for your buck.

If you’re good with tools, holla at us – there’ll be plenty to do!

Please help us achieve this next milestone. If you’re broke – please share our campaign so we can gain some traction and ultimately increase our impact.

How The Funds Will Be Used

This Christmas, you can do something really special with your hard earned dollars. Your contribution will have a huge impact – it will change the lives of young people living in poverty and without a place to call home.

One of the biggest costs associated with the project (a coffee machine), are already taken care of. All we need is enough money to buy the raw materials needed to build the cart. Help us out!

1. Trailer base: $2500
2. Plumbing: $1000
3. Fridges: $500
4. Wastage system: $1000
5. Wood: $1000
6. Raw materials: $500
7. Health certification: $500
8. Coffee machine mounting system: $500

The Challenges

We asked you to trust us when we got Crêpes for Change off the ground in 2014. Despite starting with zero in the bank, we followed through on our campaign and launched in August.

Fast forward to today – and we’ve got a great team rallying behind us, and have even bagged a sponsorship with Nutella!

Like any project, it is bound to come with logistical challenges that cannot be predicted. Having dealt with the worst of the worst (gas certification!) with our van, we are confident that we can make it work. We’ve got a talented group of architects working with us to assist in the design who are guiding us through the process.

Together, we can eliminate youth homelessness in Australia!
