Flocks For Wishes Land on Lawns for Charity

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Flocks of flamingos land on lawns across Missoula, with a special mission to make one child's dream come true.

The Circle K, Key and Rotary clubs at UM are "flocking" yards to help the Make-A-Wish Foundation raise $3,900 to grant the wish of one Missoula child suffering from a serious illness.

Your donation will send either 20, 40, or 100 flamingos to the yard of your choice.

The homeowner must then pay to have the flamingos removed and moved to a different yard of their choice.

"So we're starting primarily with the Kiwanis and Rotary clubs, we're sort of doing a competition of who can raise the most money for that child," said Circle K President, Jennifer Keller.

Flocks for Wishes is running throughout the entire month of April.

If you want to "flock" your friends, you can email Keller and her crew at flockitforward@gmail.com or you can check out their Facebook page.
