Brittany's Pink Project

Project: Women at Risk

Goal: $1600

Amount Raised: $2810

Month: November 2012

Blog: http://www.naturallyestes.com

Why:

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).

I believe that God has big things in store and I want to raise enough money to get 4 of them out of the sex industry — bringing them through the entire process of rehabilitation. FOUR women.
When I reach my goal, I’m going to take the risk and dye my hair. I love that I will also have an automatic conversation starter with everyone at the end of this: “Well you see my hair is pink because…”
I am SO excited to be a part of these efforts, and I pray God is glorified through it all!
Will you be a voice for these women too?”

I joined the Mocha Club after my first of 4 mission trips to southern Africa - a friend heard a pitch at a MC artist concert and sent me the info. I recruited a few others to join as well through missions and my church groups. I LOVE live music and being a part of what God is doing in Africa. Mocha Club is a perfect fit for me and my passions!

I'd been looking for a volunteer organization to join and immediately knew this was the one. The coffee addict that I am, just the name alone drew me in. I love the concept that if we all make small sacrifices, we can make a big difference. I'm very excited to be joining this group!
