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
Ashley in WisconsinI was blessed with the opportunity to be part of the team that traveled to Ethiopia to work with the Women At Risk program and witness first hand all that MC is doing across the globe, but also, how it’s working here; how it’s working through me. This world belongs to us. We are the ones that determine what our cities and towns revolve around, what our society deems important. Those who took a chance and made the move to make the difference, they have become my new-found inspiration and the “something” I want to be part of. While I still may be only one, I too can inspire others as The Mocha Club has allowed me the opportunity to be inspired and has opened my eyes.”
Heidi in North CarolinaI went to Ethiopia in 2012 to work with the WAR program. The women and children are shown incredible love and care in the program. They come from unimaginable backgrounds but because of the physical, spiritual and emotional support they are given, the women and children have hope for the future. I continue to be a part of MC because of the beautiful redemption God is doing through them.”
