Fundraising prank takes wing
By Kristin Kjaero
December 1, 2009 - - If you’ve wondered what’s up with those pink flamingo flocks you’ve been seeing around East County, wonder no more. In a clever response to charity fundraising in a down economy, San Diego La Hermanas is stealth-flocking people’s yards.
The group sneaks into people’s yards at night (at the request of friends or colleagues), to leave a flock of the plastic yard decorations and a sign requesting a donation of $20 or more to send them on to the yard of your choice.
