Summer. A time to get tan…get bug bites…GET ACTIVE!
Here are some easy ways to make the most of your summer…and also benefit AFRICA!
1) Penny Wars: An easy way to raise money for those in need in Africa…use your spare change to make change!
- Compete against Sunday school classes, swim teams, neighbors, etc.
- Provide each group with a Make Change jar.
- The group/class/team that raises the most money is awarded a pizza party
(contact your local pizza chain to get the pizza donated!)
*Penny Wars can also work great during the school year between classrooms!
2) Net Night: Make your family and/or community aware of those in Africa who die daily from malaria caused by mosquito bites by purchasing and sleeping under mosquito nets one night.
- Provide an opportunity for those involved to participate in what Mocha Club is doing to prevent Malaria in Africa. Just $7 can purchase a net and save someone’s life.
3) Poverty Meal: Make your family and/or community aware of those in Africa who are constantly hungry and thirsty by hosting a dinner party at your home, church or school.
- Set the table with a plate of rice and beans and a cup of muddy water. For every glass of clean water they want to drink, each person must pay $1.
- Provide opportunity for those involved to participate in what Mocha Club is doing to provide clean water to those living in Africa. ($1 = clean water for somebody in Africa for one year!)
4) Mommy’s Morning Out: Make your community aware of Mocha Club’s creation of child daycare centers in support of Child Mothers + Women At Risk.
- Ask your friends to volunteer to babysit, and host a large babysitting morning.
- Suggest that the money the moms would have paid to hire a babysitter go toward Mocha Club’s effort to support women and children in Africa.
- Provide opportunity for those involved to participate in what Mocha Club is doing to provide child care and education to Child Mothers + Women At Risk projects in Africa.
5) Mocha Night: Create an environment of conversation about Mocha Club and international justice issues in Africa.
- Get coffee and/or snacks donated.
- Provide opportunity for those involved to participate in what Mocha Club is doing to save lives in Africa.
...or get CREATIVE and come up with ideas of your own!
