Flamingo 'Flocking' For Europe

Yesterday, The Pennsylvania Patriot-News ran one of my all time favorite fundraising stories. It involves Girl Scouts and Pink Flamingo lawn ornaments. The story states:

"Cadet Troop 1314 want to go to on a scouting-related trip to Europe in two years, but they're not selling cookies to raise the $30,000 they'll need to get there. The troop, headed by leader Cathi Bornman, has purchased 100 pink plastic flamingos. For a price, they'll sneak a flock of the birds onto the yard of your choice."

Read the entire story here, and definitely let us know about creative Girl Scout fundraising campaigns in your communities!
