Mocha Club is a an online community of people giving up the cost of 2 mochas a month - or $7 - to fund relief and development projects in Africa. We work in five main project areas: Clean Water, Education, Child Mothers + Women At Risk, Orphan Care + Vulnerable Children, and HIV/AIDS + Healthcare.
Artists want to know, connect with, and be supported by music fans. Music fans want high-quality, free (or variably priced) music and to be rewarded, not punished, for sharing the music they love with their friends. We believe that if artists and fans work together, everyone can get what they want.
"A great record is its own best marketing tool," says Derek Webb, singer/songwriter and Co-Founder of NoiseTrade. "All the marketing dollars in the world can't accomplish what one great record can, especially if it's set free to roam around and connect with the right people." In 2006 Webb gave away his 'Mockingbird' record for free online, asking in return for a little information (name, email address, and postal code), and as part of the process, for fans to invite their friends to download as well.
