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?”

Clean Water is one of the basic needs to sustain life. I was stunned, no, embarrassed, to learn the death toll for lack of it. Where had I been? Oh right, lounging in my garden tub full of it! Time to towel off & get to work. Mocha Club is my feet on the ground in Africa. We make a great team!

The part about how Mocha Club's unique style of giving was born out of the feeling young people have about recognizing a great need but feeling as though they can't do anything about it resonated so deeply with me that I couldn't help but feel connected. Mocha Club gives me, and everyone involved, the opportunity to do something to help with the great need in Africa and make it matter. That's why I love Mocha Club, they show me that no matter your financial state or age, you can make a difference and your efforts can matter.
