“You’ve Been Flamingoed!”
…is what the top of the site says with a picture showing just what they mean.
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?
