Brittany's Pink Project
Project: Women at Risk
Amount Raised: $2810
Month: November 2012
While yes, dying my hair pink is most certainly a fun and risky thing, I want to make this about something bigger. For as long as I can remember I have had a passion and heart for Africa. They are my people group. While at the Influence Conference I heard about The Mocha Club and fashionABLE and their work with women in Ethiopia. My heart leapt as I felt God’s leading to be a voice for these women. They have been thrown into an unimaginable lifestyle and are faced with shaky, uncertain circumstances every day. These women are brave, they are perfect and they are loved. I want to feel confident, loved, and empowered…enough so to dye my hair pink. I also want these women, deserving women, to have a fighting chance at life. A chance to really love themselves, and know the One who gave His own son as a sacrifice for us (John 3:16).
Mocha Club Members
Melinda in AlabamaI 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!”
Cara in ArkansasI would say that I was drawn to Mocha Club because of the concept that I can give up so little so others can live. God continues to show me that I can give up something so small for the welfare of others. Because what he provides will always be enough 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.”
