FLIP FLOP to NIGERIA campaign


Sending Hope, Love, & Encouragement through
FLIP FLOPS.... to the poorest of poor villages, & to the orphanages in Nigeria. ♥
 

FLIP FLOP to NIGERIA was founded in 2012 by Spruce Dickerson, Miss Plus America Elite 2011. (www.facebook.com/MPA.ELITE.2011)

The Mission of this campaign is to reach the peoples of Nigeria in the poorest of poor villages, and the children in the orphanages, with Hope, Love & Encouragement.

The Vision which Ms. Dickerson had, & has, is that for $1.00 flip flops can be purchased in the Dollar Store. For only $1.00, hope, love & encouragement can be given to those who struggle to find it. What is $1.00 to most Americans--nothing. But, to those who have nothing at all, $1.00 is rich. Those receiving our flip flops will know they are loved! And, at the same time of providing hope, love & encouragement through a $1.00 pair of flip flops, it also provides protection for feet that do not have shoes; helping to prevent diseases & infections.

In addition to benefiting the recipient, FLIP FLOP to NIGERIA also benefits the giver. By giving a $1.00 pair of flip flops, it shows the benefactor how to love, how to give, the importance of VOLUNTEERISM & what VOLUNTEERISM looks & feels like; it teaches the value & meaning of money & just how far $1.00 will go. Plus, with spending just $1.00, ALL excuses to not participate in this campaign have been removed. The message for the giver is much deeper than just simply giving a pair of flip flops.

Also, this campaign has no age limit. Children can be a benefactor with their allowance money! Ms. Dickerson received a donation of 40 pairs of flip flops from a Princess Camp whose little girls earned flip flops daily for one week! The children were delighted to give!

The bi-lateral benefits are many.....
FLIP FLOP to NIGERIA touches EVERYONE. And, EVERYONE can participate!

What is your Hope?

My Hope in Christ eliminates all worry in my life.

 This world is not my home. I have a GLORIOUS existence waiting for me! When my loved ones in Christ pass away, I KNOW I will see them again. Better yet, I will BE WITH THEM for all eternity!

Death is not a period, but a comma in life. We all will live an eternity somewhere--- but the decision is NOW as to where that place will be. 


I'm so comforted to know my mansion is being prepared for me right now by the King of Kings, & I WILL BE WITH MY LOVED ONES & JESUS!


What do YOU have to look forward to?

CHANGE....

Change your perspective-change your attitude.... 
and your life will change!

It WORKED for ME! :) xoxo

Now, get going!

Your Heart....

Your HEART is what makes the difference....
not your looks.

2013 NEW Beginnings: Launch of Spruce's blog!

This blog has been a long time coming, and I'm finally here!!

<< 2013 signifies NEW beginnings for Spruce Dickerson, Miss Plus America Elite 2011 >>

I am excited to usher in this new year as I have been seriously preparing for my new season of life!  I closed my business of 16 years a couple of months ago, and am ready to run full steam ahead with my motivational speaking, emceeing, and modeling career!  SPRUCE DICKERSON ENTERPRISES has been birthed!!

 The Lord tells me:  "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has planned for those who love him." (1Corinthians 2:9)  Well.... I do love him, so that only means he has plans that are going to blow me away!!  And, I'm ready!!

2012 was a great year of deeper self-discovery.  A journey of growth that has been exciting thus far, and I look so very forward to more and more of it!


So much swirling around in my heart and head that I want to share with you for encouragement and inspiration that I will probably be all over the map with this blog!  ha ha  But, it's time.  It's time to step out and grow.  And, 2013 is going to be just that. So, please bear with me as I get a handle on blogging!

Stay tuned for MUCH MUCH more to come! ..... and know you are loved and appreciated!

XOXO!
