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?”

Africa has always held a special place in my heart, especially the children there.  They constantly remind me how blessed I am to have a roof over my head and food in my stomach.  My grandfather and my brother have both been to Africa and came home with heartfelt stories.  I love how MochaClub takes something as simple as $9 a month and helps so many people!  This is why I have joined MochaClub and continue to stay as well as volunteer my time when I can.  I love the people at MochaClub, their heart, and their willingness to help those around the world.  Going to Africa is on my bucket list and I look forward to that day, but until then I will continue to show my support through Mocha Club.

I heard about Mocha Club at the Influence Conference in 2012 and fell in love with the whole concept...that I can make a difference! It's amazing to see how much I actually THINK about the choices I'm making when I spend money...what is a treat for one person can be a treasure to someone else and a turning point for yet another person. I'm so blessed by Mocha Club!
