One of the Most Unique Fundraisers The Fundraising Network has Found

“You’ve Been Flamingoed!”

…is what the top of the site says with a picture showing just what they mean.

Flamingo Fundraiser

The concept is simple.  Your supporters pay to have their friends “flamingoed.”  However, you don’t have to stop there.  You can sell “anti-flamingo” insurance and make money from both ends!

The Fundraising Network saw great fun in this one.  Here’s what happens.

So what is this Flamingo Flocking Fun Fundraiser
offered by Result$ Fundraising?

In the dead of the night, your members place the flamingos in the yards of the friends that all of your supporters paid to have “Flamingoed”.  Each of the flocks will have a note explaining how a friend of theirs paid to have them “Flamingoed” in support of your fundraiser and that you will be back to retrieve the flamingoes. The note also lets them know that if they pay your group a donation, when you remove the flock, you will send it to the yard of any friend that they choose. This fundraiser continues to feed on itself as the flamingos migrate from victim to victim.

The money isn’t bad either.  Flocking Donations range from $10-$30 depending on whether your supporter wants a small flock up to a super-size flock.  Anti-flamingo insurance is just $10.  We were doing a little math.

  • If you have a group with 50 supporters and 80% participated and that means 40 people order a small flock (12 bird flock for $10).  That’s $400.
  • 20% order anti-flocking insurance at $10 per policy, so that’s another $200.
  • Of the 30 people who get flocked, 50% (15 people) flock someone else with a small flock, that’s another $150.
  • $400 + $200 + $150.  That’s $750 in just a few nights, and it’s only for small flocks.

If this writer were participating, he can think of at least two flocking vicitms who would receive super-size flocks (60 flamingoes) and many who would receive smaller flocks.  You can see how this grows, can’t you?

Of course, you need to consider your cost too.  2 small flocks (24 flamingos total) cost about $144.  However, you don’t have to buy birds for every order.  Just put your victims in flocking order and move your flocks from yard to yard each night.  Just remember to purchase some extra flamingos to replace any that may get lost for any reason.

So if the laws in your area permit and you have a group that will enjoy this type of activity, this might be the fundraiser for you. Want more information?

CUMMING, Georgia – Members of the Salt Life Church will be selling cookbooks to raise funds for local missions as well as other organizations in need within the county.

Printed by G&R Publishing, the cookbook “From Our Table to Yours” is full of tried-and-true recipes collected from the members of the Salt Life Church. These recipes were selected to be mouth-watering yet easy to prepare. Many meal ideas are found in these pages from healthy choices to desserts.

The Salt Life Church is a smaller church with members as big as life itself. Their staff is devoted to making every member feel like they are part of a very special family. Every visitor feels welcomed every time at this loving and friendly church. Everyone is welcomed to visit.

One of the highlights from the many great contributions this book contains is Mama Nea’s Baked Macaroni and Cheese, found on page 21. Submitted by Renee Quick, this recipe is a fabulous choice for the true cheese-lover. On page 35 (and listed below), you’ll find a recipe for Veggie Burger Stack, a feast for any health-conscious eater, submitted by Margaret Chamblee

When asked about the process of putting this cookbook together, cookbook chairperson Diana Craver said, “Our mission began by a simple thought, a plan and a venue. We met in the church one afternoon after the service to discuss the plan. Everyone was thrilled to jump right in and start submitting recipes. Margaret Chamblee had the daunting task of editing every recipe, and then it was organized and approved by Margaret, Nora Craver and myself. Our experience with G&R Publishing has been a very positive one. We highly suggest contacting them if your organization needs a way to raise funds.”

Creating the recipes you find in this cookbook will be a fun, and a wonderful experience. There are some surprises in the book as well, such as a section for kid’s crafts, how to set your table, and much more. If you have wondered about healthy eating, the pastor’s wife Nora, spent many hours compiling some healthy tips to nourish our bodies. Furthermore, there is a section about fasting for body and soul.

These books are a great value at $10.00 per book and are a great gift idea for the upcoming holiday season. They can be purchased at the Cumming Fair from 10/3 to 10/13 or you can contact the Salt Life Church at 215 Advantage DR, STE. 200, Cumming, GA 30040 or call (770) 549-1856. You can also find Salt Life Church on Facebook & Twitter.
