This week we celebrate our tenth birthday! A milestone we very nearly didn't make.
The past few months has challenged the way we do business. We've negotiated the challenge of connecting customers & social impact in a socially distanced world. But a global pandemic will not unseat the formidable enterprise our community has built. We owe everything to our community support, which stretches back to day zero. 
  • In 2010 we built our flagship cafe with the labour of 200 volunteers and a budget of $10,000. 
  • Within two years, our customer & volunteer community had already eclipsed the space. 
  • In 2013 we crowdfunded a must needed renovation to expand the cafe & volunteer community. 
  • But by 2018 the wait for volunteer placements had once more grown to 3 to 6 months. 
  • In 2019 our second mammoth crowdfunding campaign launched a sister venue Sibling, with over 250 social investors.
  • To date, we've connected over 1,000 volunteers with community, connection & training. 
  • And we've hosted over a million guest experiences.  
Our tenth birthday has passed without fanfare. There's no cake this year. We're busy trading under new takeaway models, delivering vital food relief & working on plans to re-open Kinfolk & reinstate our volunteer program. But if you'd like to send us a gift, please considering gifting us a birthday donation. This year, you can choose the impact of your donation :
