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