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
John in Pennsylvania“I joined Mocha Club after I heard it presented at a Sanctus Real concert. I love what the MC team is doing and, as an avid coffee drinker, I agreed that giving to this great cause is the least we can do to help our brothers and sisters in need. I'm excited to continue supporting Mocha Club!””
Christy in MarylandAt a concert, Dave Barnes inspired me to join MC. Volunteering & hearing stories brought a deeper need to be involved & serve others. Going to Ethiopia w. MC & seeing the difference just $7 can make in the lives of others changed my life. I learned that: I truly need Africa more than Africa needs me!”
