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
Adam in ColoradoOne 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.”
Fallon in MichiganWhen I heard about the Mocha Club back in 2007 - I fell in love with their story and the heart behind their mission. My small sacrifice, along with countless others, are making a big impact in Africa and in our own lives. I love the MC community!”
