Warning! Pink Flamingos on the way!!!!!

ADVERTISEMENT

On this morning's show we were talking about fundraisers, and someone called in to tell us about their most successful fundraiser-the Pink Flamingos, (it figures that it was a youth pastor!).

I have had about 5 successful Pink Flamingo fundraisers in my career as a youth pastor. We never made less than $2,000 on each one.

Here's how it works: Simply take your church roll and divide it up into geographical areas with no more than 10 homes on each list.

Purchase a plastic, tacky pink flamingo lawn statue for each list. Take a saw and cut a little "door" in the underside of each bird.

Type up a letter that says basically, "You have been flamingoed! Quickly relocate this bird to the next name and address on the enclosed list. Scratch your name off the list, and the next time you are at "church" drop off a Flaimingo Relocation Fee in the Flamingo Box located in the lobby. Place this letter inside a ziploc bag and place inside the flamingo, and then under the dark of night, sneak into the first persons yard and stick the flamingo in the ground.

It is a great way for a congregation to have fun together, spend time as families "sneaking around town" and a great way to raise donations for mission trips etc.

If you have any other questions-just email me and let me know.

By the way, No flamingos were harmed in the execution of this fundraiser!
