Editor’s note: We’re excited to announce that one of our Mocha Club members and volunteers, Annie, will be blogging from Capetown, South Africa on the Mocha Club trip that leaves on May 28th! This is our first official “trip blogger” so please help us spread the word and check back for updates!

Hi y’all. I should have known better. I should have known that if I planned to pack on Tuesday, it would actually get done on Wednesday. I’m not a great pre-packer. And honestly, the pressure of you waiting on the video is the only reason I’m packed now. A few things:

1) I’m learning how to use this newfangled flip video camera. It’s very cool, but forgive the shaky-shakes.

2) We have a professional video editor that works with us at Mocha Club. I am not her.

3) Once I finished the video, I realized I had forgotten to pack any pants. So for total honesty’s sake, you should know that I’m going to have to pack some pants.

We leave for South Africa from Nashville on Thursday, May 28th but don’t arrive in Cape Town until Saturday. We’ll update you as soon as we are able.

I joined the Mocha Club because it seemed like an easy way to get involved. I have fallen in love with their mission over the past five years and have personally witnessed the difference being made in Africa. The Mocha Club is truly changing lives- not just of individuals- but of entire villages!

Hi! My name is Elizabeth. My husband, Joe, and I have loved being a part of Mocha Club since 2006. We love the premise behind giving up 2 small mochas a month to give life changing supplies/necessities to people half way around the world! Such a small joyful sacrifice to make a huge impact! Thank you, Mocha Club, for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful organization!
