I Need Africa!

Hey friends! I wanted to take a moment to tell you about something that we in Jaymes Reunion are excited about being involved with! its called Mocha Club
we are VERY excited about the different projects that Mocha Club has going on… the reason personally I have been so attracted to what Mocha Club is doing, is due to a trip I took to Kenya two years ago. It changed my life forever, in ways that I expected and a lot of ways that were unexpected. When the Band first got connected with Mocha Club.. I knew immediately that I was ‘In’. if you would like more info in general on Mocha Club I encourage you to go to their site ( mochaclub.org) . please go check it out. compassion and love for others is vital.

but what I wanted to tell you guys about is a new project Mocha Club is starting, and that we are stoked about! please check out everything below!

When I think of Africa, the following images immediately come to mind: Starvation. AIDS. Child soldiers. Genocide. Sex slaves. Orphans. From there, my thoughts naturally turn to how I can help, how I can make a difference. “I am needed here,” I think. “They have so little, and I have so much.” It’s true, there are great tragedies playing out in Africa everyday. There is often a level of suffering here that is unimaginable until you have seen it, and even then it is difficult to believe. But what is even harder is reconciling the challenges that many Africans face with the joy I see in the people. It’s a joy that comes from somewhere I cannot fathom, not within the framework that has been my life to this day.
