Imagine arriving at work or home and finding a flock of hot pink plastic flamingos standing on your lawn! They are accompanied by a yard sign that declares their purpose.
This particular group of fine-feathered friends traveled their way around my town during May 2015, landing at a business off of Main Street (I know that sounds so stereotypical, but it is truly the name).
Definitely a worthy cause, the fundraiser for Relay for Life announced the resident/business had been flocked! There were also directions for having the flock removed or sent to another location!
|As cute as they are, it would be more fun to pay the higher amount to prevent their return!|
The devious side of me is thinking about where to send these birds if my turn to get flocked happens next year. Not only will my donation go for a good purpose, I'll have fun making sending the flamingos to someone else's area.
Research to defeat cancer is expensive. Fundraising is an important part of the budget. I've lost several friends and family members of all ages to this dreadful disease. It may not end in my lifetime, but I hope that it is beaten once and for all in my children's lifetime.
Meanwhile, it's good to see a subtle hint combined with a good laugh to encourage community participation in cancer awareness.
