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
Jenni in FloridaI first heard about the Mocha Club when I saw someone wearing the shirt and knew I needed it. See I love Africa - I love everything about that continent - the people, the landscape, the joy, the tears. I had the joy of going to Uganda with my church in 2011 and had my love become a reality. Being with the people, working with them, loving on them, they truly blessed me more than I could ever bless them. The joy overflows there and they remind you that true delight comes in relationships and God and not in earthly treasures. Every time I hear or see the word Africa I get excited and am anxious to explore what God's plans are for me regarding this wonderful place.”
Samantha in TennesseeI joined Mocha Club is 2008 when I became aware of the desparate needs of our brothers and sisters in Africa. My monthly contribution is a reminder that not everyone has the luxuries that I am accustomed to. Each month, I see the impact that skipping a few coffee runs makes on children in need and am delighted to be a small part of Mocha Club's effort.”
