Back in May, we had the awesome #KenyaMocha live stream and you all joined Annie and the team to raise money for our teachers at New Dawn! As a thank you, Jessi + Lindsey designed a one-of-a-kind print and anyone who joined Mocha Club that night had a chance to be the winner of the original art piece.
Congratulations to Shannon! She was our lucky recipient of this beautiful canvas.
“I first heard about Mocha Club at the Influence Conference in 2012. Having several friends participate in Purpose Projects, I began following the organizations work more closely. The more I learned, the more I was excited about their commitment to Africa. Seeing Annie Downs, who I also heard at the Influence Conference a year later, partner with Mocha Club sealed the deal for me.
I live in Washington DC, one of the nation’s worst public education systems. I partner with an education focused organization here in DC helping to mentor and tutor underserved children. Seeing this issue first hand has made me realize not only how great the need is, but what a tremendous impact each small contribution can make. When Annie Downs asked people to join her in supporting the New Dawn Education Centre, it was a no brainer. Yes! I want my money and time to support education across the globe, because education changes generations.”
Giving is lovely. Thank you all for giving each month and impacting so many lives in Africa.
