another way to help my purpose project: buy a livefashionABLE scarf {the knitting project}

You guys, I cannot believe it. On Saturday night, a whole 6 days before the end of the month I reached my goal for my purpose project.

I seriously cannot even find the words to describe to you how happy my heart is. I was so scared to do this purpose project because I was afraid I was going to fail and not meet the goal.  I quickly realized even if I didn’t reach my goal I would not have failed. Any money I raised was going to help a woman have a chance at living her life without prostitution. A chance to feel like she has purpose here on earth and is proud of what she does. 

I can't even begin to describe to you how this project moved my heart. There are still a few more days left in the month of November, so there are still a few more days for you to donate if your heart is leading you to support this cause. 
Since my goal has been reached I want to introduce another way for your to help support Mocha Club and the women they are able to help rehabilitate. Purchase a scarf from livefashionABLE

Your purchase of a fashionABLE scarf creates sustainable business for women in Africa.  Our commitment as a non-profit is to the development of people — fashionABLE works with women who have been exploited due to the effects of poverty.  So, when you purchase a scarf you are providing jobs, and then we send the net profits back to holistically rehabilitate more women. This is the beauty of non-profit…. -livefashionABLE website

These scarves would make a wonderful Christmast gift this holiday season. You would be giving someone a beautiful handmade scarf and you'd also be supporting a woman in Ethiopia as well as help rehabilitate more women. I can't think of a better gift to give.

Meet Etanesh, her story shows how wonderful Mocha Club and livefashionABLE is.



“I moved to the city to live with my uncle and go to a better school, but he died and left me by myself. I got into prostitution because I was all alone and had no money. Everything was dark. I was abused and wanted to die, and prayed for God to take me out of this life. // I’ve never looked back at leaving because I am so happy now. I have found motivation to have my own business one day, and I want my son to grow and be in a good place. I am so grateful to everyone who has helped me get this point” -livefashionABLE website 

Now that my goal has been reached I need to sign up for my knitting class! If you knit was is your favorite item to make?
