I’ll never forget the first time I heard some of the stories of the women Mocha Club reaches out to through their Women At Risk program in Nazaret, Ethiopia. I clicked on their “Women at Risk” video, and I listened, and I watched, and I wept. Many of them are swept up into a vicious cycle of prostitution and poverty at an extremely young age. I didn’t know. You cannot hear the stories of these women without being moved and without wanting to do something to help. Please take a second out of your day, and give these women the dignity of listening. As you listen, know that there’s something you can do to help. By joining Mocha Club for the cost of two expensive coffee drinks a month ($9), you can help provide the counseling, community, and job training that these women so desperately need. Please consider joining me and the Mocha Club to help give these women a chance to find dignity in their work, healing from their past, and hope for their future.

Also, be sure to do good and look good at the same time by checking out fashionABLE, Mocha Club’s sustainable business where many of these women at risk in Ethiopia who would otherwise be caught up in prostitution, are trained to make and sell beautiful scarves.

One day, I saw Jonny Lang play in Boulder, CO. His opener was the little known Dave Barnes. Later that year, I saw Dave headline a show in Atlanta, GA. In the middle of his set, he told a story about visiting Africa with Mocha Club and then played “10,000 Children.” I was sold and, well here we are.

I joined because I thought it was such a brilliant, simple concept. Back in 2006, I just kept hearing vaguely about bad stuff going on "in Africa." I remember thinking, "Okay...? But what can I do about it?" 2 mochas a month -- that's what I could do! I volunteer in whatever capacity I'm needed because I believe in MC and I've spent years seeing my small contribution resulting in real impact halfway around the world.
