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
Elizabeth in GeorgiaHi! My name is Elizabeth. My husband, Joe, and I have loved being a part of Mocha Club since 2006. We love the premise behind giving up 2 small mochas a month to give life changing supplies/necessities to people half way around the world! Such a small joyful sacrifice to make a huge impact! Thank you, Mocha Club, for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful organization!”
Jessica in TennesseeWhat can I do to give back? is a question that is always on my mind. I feel incredibly blessed and want to always remember others who have different lives and cultures that may not be as giving or as loved as the one that I'm used to. In fact, I'm incredibly impressed with Mocha Club's goal of offering a variety of ways for people to help, wherever you are in life with whatever amount one may have to give. ”
