I joined Mocha Club while at a concert! I learned that giving up something that I take for granted could make a life changing impact for someone else and joining became a no brainer for me.

The overflow of that is what He ask me to give to others. I love that Mocha Club makes it easy to encourage others to sacrifice something so small as a Mocha, coffee, etc.
