Alive Summer Fundraiser
What do lawn flamingos have to do with the advancement of God’s kingdom? Well this Summer, quite a lot! The Alive youth group is preparing for our weeklong Together camp.
Together is a week-long camp designed to engage High Schoolers and Middle Schoolers in deep fellowship. As we created the schedule we intentionally thought through every day. If you haven’t yet I encourage you to take a moment and read all about it here.
I truly believe God will use our time at Together this year to connect truth to the lives of our teens. However, one factor that can limit who gets to attend is cost. This is where fundraisers become necessary.
We have tried many different fundraising tactics in the past but this year we decided to try something a little different. Something a little quirky and definitely a lot of fun!
Enter the Flamingos
From now through June 8th you can get in on the fun by giving to our Alive Together Camp Fundraiser. All of the proceeds will go towards the camp. We hope that the response will be large enough to offset costs and maybe even offer some scholarships.
I know our church is generous and if I left it there I’m confident many of you would contribute. But I want you all to have fun while your blessing the teens!
So, when you donate $50 or more you can pick any member of our church as a “target” to be flocked. I, and whatever team I can convince to get up this early, will show up at that members house and place 50 lawn flamingos in their front lawn.
Don’t worry, we will come back in the afternoon to pick them up. But, your “target” can enjoy the looks of their neighbors in the meantime!
But Wait There’s More
If you would like to prevent such a horrible thing happening to your lawn then I have the product for you. Flamingo Insurance! If you give a $100 or more to the Alive Fundraiser and state it is for Flamingo Insurance then your lawn will be under protection.
That means, anytime someone targets you they will wake up in the morning to find that their plans backfired. That’s right! They will have 50 flamingos in their lawn instead.
One Last Rule
If someone has Lawn Insurance but you still really want to get them, you have an option. Lawn Insurance covers 2 "targets" but if you purchase (or a group of you purchase) 3 targets then the Flamingos will get through. This is where pooling your resources pays off ;)
If you are the lucky target of a flock of lawn flamingos we ask two things.
1) Please leave the Flamingos in your lawn until a crew can pick them up later that afternoon.
2) Enjoy the looks of your neighbors.
You can also give a one time financial gift, "target" someone or buy "insurance" on select Sundays in our lobby. Enjoy!
