We need your help to create a youth-run crêpe cart with 100% of the profits to be used to eliminate youth homelessness in Australia.

There are over 40,000 young people sleeping rough in Australia EVERY night.
It's hard to believe, but it's true. And clearly, that's 40,000 too many.

Our plan is simple: we will roam Victoria's streets, markets and festivals and spread the crêpe love for the benefit of those who need it more.

We also want to establish a program allowing us to employ, train and support young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and allow them to find long-term employment and prosper on their own.
But we can't do it without your help.

$10,000 will allow us to get over the line - but we'll need double that to fully achieve our goal.

We're just a couple of Melbournians with big ideas.

It's a HUGE problem in Australia!

We live in a pretty great country, there's no doubt about it. And we live in an exciting time full of opportunities to be had, but the sad reality is that not everyone starts off from the same level.

Many people lack not only the tangible basics such as food and accommodation, but also the things that shape a person's life immeasurably: a loving family, inspiring teachers and mentors, support from their community and people who will give them a shot. It's heartbreaking to see people unable to leverage themselves out of a bad situation.

That's where we come in.

Help us make it happen.

We can do it! We're all working overtime getting support for our project - including seeking sponsors and supporters. We've already got the crêpe machines, but here is a conservative breakdown of the rest of the costs:

  1. Trailer – approx. $8500
  2. Fitting out trailer/plumbing/electricity - $4500
  3. Benches/cupboards/storage - $2000
  4. Bar fridges x3 - $100-500 ea ($500-$1500).
  5. Sneezeguard - $1000
  6. Utensils – $500
  7. Wood - $200-300
  8. Generator - $1500
  9. Lights/decoration - $500
  10. Business registration - $500
    1. Total: Approx $20,000.
Get onboard, get excited and tell your friends. Also, if you happen to have any of the items we need lying around unwanted - let us know! We can put them to good use.
