About Stephanie Orefice
When I tell most people I'm in the Mocha Club, they kind of laugh and think, “ Well duh. You love mochas; I'm sure you've found a club for that." But then I have to tell them that Mocha Club is about giving up mochas. Not for the sake of just giving up mochas, but because giving up two mochas a month (around $9) can change lives for people in Africa. Like... actually change lives. Life-saving medicine, orphanages, clean water, schooling... all things that the Mocha Club helps provide.
I've been a part of Mocha Club for 11 years. That's roughly 264 mochas I've given up to help aid the different projects of an organization I believe in. Now I'm going to flip the switch and instead of GIVING UP something I love, I'm going to ATTEMPT to do something I don't. I hate running. I literally have shirts that say I hate running, because I hate it that much. But here's the thing : I want to give the Mocha Club a gift to help them keep doing what they're doing…and I want you to join me.
If we raise $1,500 I'm going to run a 5k. Not because I love running, just like I don't love giving up mochas, but because I want others to help me do something I'd probably not do otherwise and I want the Mocha Club to reap the benefits! Would you join me in meeting my goal?
