Mocha Club Members

Katie
When I decide to make giving a priority for the new year, I was really nervous about how I would budget it into an already tight budget. After hearing that I could give $9 a month, I was convinced I could find $9 worth of unnecessary purchases in my monthly spending and turn that into positive spending. Now that I am giving, I realize there was nothing to be nervous about. I do not even miss those unnecessary purchases and each month when I see my $9 charge for Mocha Club, I know I am helping create change.  Even if I help change one life, I am making a difference.

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to figure out just why I need Africa.  It seems like it should be so very simple.  I’ve been a Mocha Club member for years.  I interned and even went on a trip.  Then it finally hit me.  I spend almost 2 weeks seeing things that I would try to comprehend at home in my comfortable little life, but I could never really understand until I was face to face with them. I need Africa because Africa showed me a bigger reality than the one I thought I was living in.  I need Africa because Africa taught me how to dream big. Africa showed me that I too have a place in changing the world around me; it’s now up to me if I want to take it.
