What the Flock?

I got the Planet Cancer newsletter in my inbox today. They are beginning their second annual Austin Flamingo Project. I love this idea! It makes me wish I knew someone in Austin. You can visit them for more information on this worthwhile event. (Can we bring this to Indianapolis?)
The flamingos are coming!

The Austin Flamingo Project is the second annual fundraiser for Planet Cancer, an Austin-based, national non-profit that provides support for young adults with cancer in their 20s and 30s. We'll be sending flocks of pink yard flamingos all over Austin in April and May, raising money and awareness to help us address the unique needs and issues of young adults facing a life-threatening illness in the prime of their lives.

Here's how it works:

To flock someone, you pay a small fee to send 20 lovely pink flamingos to the yard of another person or business, where they will roost for three days. The “flockee” can make the requested donation to have the flamingos fly away or they can pay a little extra to flock someone else—perhaps the original “flocker!”

Flock someone for their birthday. Flock someone to celebrate a new job or a new baby. Give a sick friend a chuckle with a surprise flocking. Or flock someone just so you can call them up and say, “FLOCK YOU!”

It's all in good fun, donations are 100% tax-deductible, and it's for a worthwhile cause.
