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
Whitney in New YorkI was inspired to join Mocha Club after hearing a passionate explanation of what it's all about from Matt Wertz at one of his shows. The concept of giving up just a few "mochas" (in my case, green tea lemonades) a month brilliantly displays the reality of how easy it is to help others. In our privileged first world lives (even for those of us who barely make rent) that really is nothing out of the budget. The impact just one person can have on such life-changing causes is more rewarding then we can imagine. It should be this obvious to everyone! Get involved.”

I stick around because the Mocha Club has given me the ability to believe in small things shaping the world as a whole.”
