You guys.

We had the best time on Thursday night.

It was like being on The View, but I have a very very husky voice.

(Medical update: I cannot figure out what the situation is, but for the last three nights, I have been coughing / hacking up a lung anytime I am horizontal and attempting to sleep, and I lose my voice every day. My throat isn’t sore or hurting, I have no runny nose or itchy eyes. But my voice is husky like a dude. What is my deal, doctors of the internet?)

But if you’ve got 47 minutes during this holiday weekend, watch us discuss all manner of things Mocha Club and New Dawn (and deal with my voice sitch).

We believe so much in what New Dawn High School is doing in Nairobi, Kenya, and we would love to be able to continue to support it. Here’s the facts:


Last night, we had 19 people sign up. So we’ve got 11 spots left for you guys to get the fun package of goodies if you join us!

We’d love to meet our goal of 31 members to pay for a teacher’s salary this weekend. Will you consider joining us?

Thanks for loving Mocha Club and me and understanding our week. I’m really really grateful.

Have a great weekend.

    I’ve never commented before but I felt compelled to answer your medical plea;) I had the same problem, coughing when I lay down, sometimes even waking myself up in the night. I also had a hoarse voice and then developed a persistent sore throat. It turns out, I had acid reflux. I never thought of that because I had no stomach pain or heartburn. But after taking a daily acid-reducer all of my symptoms went away in about a week. I hope your problem is just as easily cured.

    Allergies, my friend.
    Post nasal drip.
    Although my MD suggested acid reflux despite the fact that I eat Paleo/ very healthy… Nothing for my body to reject/reflux. Allergy doc says post nasal drip, and guess who I believe?
    Yeah, what have you done for me lately?
