  I absolutely LOVE the nonprofit Mocha Club and everything they stand for. I first heard about Mocha Club ages ago at a Matt Wertz concert… My freshman year of college, the fall of ’08, a few of my friends and I roadtripped from Athens, Georgia to Chattanooga, Tennessee to see Matt Wertz in concert. It was so fun- he always puts on an amazing show! He spoke about Mocha Club and what it meant to him during intermission, and I knew I just had to join.

  Fast forward to that summer. I was back home in Nashville and wanted to get an internship and give back to my community… so where did I land? At Mocha Club, of course! I was a part of that very first intern group, and it was a complete blast. To this day I will never forget one of the first things I did at Mocha Club… I was in a room with Barrett Ward, founder of Mocha Club and FashionABLE, and he wanted to narrow down the project areas and clarify their focus. So we sat there, discussed, prayed, and finalized the maybe 6-7 project areas down to the 5 that still remain today. It was such a great moment, and I felt so humbled to be included in that lasting decision. Hearing his heart behind each one of the projects was moving and made me even more impassioned for their cause.

  As an intern at Mocha Club, we created the Campus Rep program. So, naturally, as I transitioned back to campus life at the University of Georgia, I also became one of the first campus reps. I set up booths all over the place and championed Mocha Club’s message. I spoke a fraternity and sorority chapter meetings, and even had a leadership team. At the first ever Mocha Club meeting, my boyfriend of just a week at the time (now husband), was the only male to attend. (When I learned that he was already a Mocha Club member, joining at a Micah Dalton concert around the same time I joined, I just knew he was a winner!)

We recently got to volunteer with Mocha Club at a Dave Barnes + Matt Wertz concert in Atlanta, where we now call home. It was a complete full circle moment for us. We were crazy and signed up knowing we would have a 6-week old baby at home. We were exhausted, but oh so thankful to continue to partner with Mocha Club. Thank you to those of you who give to Mocha Club- know that your dollars are well spent: jobs are created, bellies are filled, thirst is quenched, and love is shared.

“Still Breathing” (Summer Sessions)

“I am honored to be able to partner with an organization like Mocha Club who is helping change the lives of women in Ethiopia. The work Mocha Club does is close to my heart and something I’ve been passionate about for years, spreading awareness to end the sex trade that tragically spans our world. To be able to share the stories of these women and support them directly is just a start, and we’re so proud to stand with them in their triumph.” – Deena Jakoub

Join the Club with Becca Bradley!

 

Becca Bradley Press Shot  WHITEI am so excited to be linking arms with the Mocha Club as an artist sponsor! The fact that God could use my music and ministry to change the lives of people in need across the globe is truly overwhelming. I’ll never forget the first time I heard some of the stories of the women that Mocha Club reaches through their Economic Freedom program in Nazaret, Ethiopia. Countless women and children in Nazaret are forced into lives of prostitution as a desperate attempt to get out of poverty, but it becomes a vicious cycle that slowly eats away at their dignity.  Mocha Club comes alongside these women to provide spiritual, emotional and psychological counseling and to help them find alternate means of income to support them and their families.   When I heard the stories of these women, and when I saw their beautiful faces, I knew I had to do something.  For the cost of just a few lattes or mochas a month, you could change the lives of some amazing women who are so deserving of a chance at life and freedom.  Please take a few minutes out of your day to pray about joining me and the Mocha Club in our quest to restore hope and dignity to the least of these.  –Becca

 

Bring hope, restore dignity and change lives for $18 a month.
