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).

Christine in TennesseeThe problems in Africa can at times seem so big and hopeless but Mocha Club makes me feel like I can be a part of making a difference. On my own I know my $9 wouldn't go very far, but by combining all of our small sacrifies and making teams who are giving to different missions we can together can make a big impact. I love that!”
Mike in MinnesotaThe Mocha Club offers a unique way to support a few impactful projects within one organization! After visiting Africa in 2006, I knew that I could sacrifice 3 or 4 trips to Starbucks a month if that meant helping others get the smallest things necessary in life like water, food and education.”
