The Influence Conference wants to be about more than ourselves. We want to encourage blogging for doing His work in all of the unique ways that plays out. Barrett Ward is the founder of fashionABLE–and will be speaking to the heart of using your influence to end poverty and seek justice and mercy. We are beyond excited for him to share his heart and can’t wait to learn from his wisdom.
A bit about Barrett:
Barrett Ward founded Mocha Club
in 2005 – a new generation of activists giving up the cost of a few mochas a month, to fund relief and development projects in Africa. A few years later, Barrett moved to Ethiopia for a year. While there, he ran across Women at Risk, a group that works with women exploited in the sex industry. After seeing their effectiveness and the dignity restored in these women, he learned that one of the biggest challenges to keeping these women off the streets is gainful employment. For this purpose, fashionABLE
was conceived, giving these women an opportunity to be employed weaving beautiful scarves that are now sold all around the world. Barrett resides in Nashville, TN with his wife, and 2 beautiful Ethiopian daughters.
We are incredibly excited to be partnering with fashionABLE
to bring you The Influence Conference. We hope you’ll support them and learn more about what they are up to–because their sponsorship allows us to bring you an amazing event. Plus, being involved with Barrett’s organizations will bless YOU immensely.
