When the idea for Glowing Local was still just a bunch of ideas on paper, I didn’t know much for certain, but I knew I had two big goals: to point people to the Lord, and to give away part of the profits to people who were in need. I saw the start of Glowing Local as a way for our family to be more generous, really laying the profits of Glowing Local before the Lord, to do what He saw fit. I hoped that the idea of giving would be ingrained in the philosophy of what Glowing Local was all about, living out Matthew 25 - to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, help the needy.
Mocha Club really hits a spot in me with their mission of “giving up a few mochas a month.” When I look at my budget, things can feel really tight. How can I give more money, when we’re already pressed thin? But, when you think of it in terms of small purchases, like mochas, well I always seem to have a few extra bucks for those. Genius.
I was really drawn to Mocha Club’s Orphan Care work, as I have worked with children for many years. Mocha Club is making tangible differences in the lives of children in Kauma, Malawi in Africa. Because Mocha Club has funded clean water in the city, children don’t get sick as often, allowing them to attend school, which opens a world of opportunity to them. Because Mocha Club helps feed these children, when they attend school, they can pay attention, as hungry kids really can't learn.
By partnering with Mocha Club, a portion of every purchase from Glowing Local goes straight to Mocha Club, to fund the Orphan Care work in Kauma. Your purchase is providing hope and a future. Your purchase is meeting a need for a child in great poverty across the globe.
If you don’t already support Mocha Club through their monthly giving, you should….today! What a great way to start the new year; commit today to give up a few mochas each month to give desperate children hope and a future.
Won’t you join Mocha Club in this great mission?
