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
Anna in TennesseeI love the Mocha Club because they are encouraging and empowering people who make a difference in Africa. I joined because of their commitment to the different projects areas and the development of sustainable solutions.”
Amy in VirginiaI joined before traveling to Ethiopia, but now that I've gone, MC helps me stay connected to those I met. I met incredible people and I know MC is doing everything they can to empower and encourage those in their community in Africa. It feels like a huge family!”
