Dave Barnes killed it here the last two nights at the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles. Him and some of his musician friends, including Matt Wertz, support the Mocha Club, which provides a way for people who don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars to make a difference in Africa. They do this through a community-based website where members can start a team and invite friends to join them in giving $7 a month – the cost of 2 mochas – to support a project in Africa.
Wrap your mind around this…$7 in Africa can:
-FEED one person for a month.
-EDUCATE 2 children for 1 school term.
-SAVE 1 person’s life from malaria.
-PROVIDE clean water to 7 africans for 1 year
Pretty amazing huh? Next time you’re going for your morning coffee, visit www.mochaclub.org instead and change the life of someone in Africa.
