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
Bailey in TexasI joined Mocha Club to remind me that God blesses me so that I can bless others. The resources I have are no good if I am not sharing them. I love Mocha Club because I get to donate to something I am very passionate about--education--AND I get to see the impact member dollars are making.”
Katie in AlabamaI joined Mocha Club at a Dave Barnes concert because after hearing about the organization, I learned that the value of $9/month in Africa was immeasurable compared to what $9/month would be used for here in the U.S. Through Mocha Club, I got a chance to go to South Africa and meet the people of the Cape Town townships. We helped build a preschool where children now have a place to go during the day and hear about Jesus. I got to see, first hand, the people that are positively impacted and forever changed through the money that people give to Mocha Club. I will always be a member of Mocha Club because my money each month provides support for that preschool that I helped to build. Kids are now able to have a place to go to eat, play, and experience the love of God all because I, along with the other members of Mocha Club, agreed to give up a Starbucks or two a month. I’m humbled and honored to have the opportunity to partner with Mocha Club to serve the wonderful people of Africa.”
