Flock Your Friends For Good Causes


There are less than 2 weeks left to make your friend, foe, competitor or family member laugh in this crazy time all while helping a couple of great causes!!!

People… it’s time to “FLOCK YOUR FRIENDS!”  As the Brainerd Lakes Area Women of Today spread the love by placing a bunch of pink, plastic flamingos in the yard of those you’d like to “flock!”  Yes, you can have anywhere from 10 to 50 plastic, pink flamingos placed in their yard or in front of their business but all in good fun and for a great couple of causes!

To quote the Brainerd Lakes Area Women of Today’s Website, this is how it works:

“The rules to Flock A Friend are simple. You pay $1 per bird and the Brainerd Lakes Area Women Of Today will migrate the birds from location to location. The flock will remain on one’s lawn for 2-3 days and then will be picked up by a BLAWT member.


This is a fundraiser by the Brainerd Lakes Area Women of Today. Each year we share the proceeds between H.A.R.T. (Heartland Animal Rescue Team) and Ruff Start Rescue . Many in our chapter are dedicated pet owners and want to help animals that are less fortunate.

You too can support this fundraiser! We would love for you to play along. There are two ways to order – online at to complete an order form and donate to our cause, or print and complete the form from the link below and mail with a check to Brainerd Lakes Area Women of Today at P.O. Box 1225, Brainerd MN 56401. The birds head south October 1, so don’t delay!

Flockings are anonymous, our flockers don’t know who requests the flockings. Your friend or family member has to guess who has “victimized” them. We ask that you keep the
COVID-19 situation in mind when you flock someone; not everyone may want the birds in their yard.
 If you don’t care to flock but want to help with a donation, you can do this here or mail a check to the address above. You can also virtually flock someone! Click the “Virtual Flock” button for mroe details! Any amount is appreciated!

 It is the goal of the Brainerd Lakes Area Women of Today to raise $1,000 with this
fundraiser and donate the money to HART Animal Shelter and Ruff Start Rescue. 

Flocking fees are as follows and must be within 15 miles of the Brainerd/Baxter area:

  • Small Flock (20 flamingos)             $20 donation
  • Medium Flock (25 flamingos)         $25 donation
  • Large Flock (30 flamingos)             $30 donation
  • Extra Large Flock (40 flamingos)    $40 donation
  • Super Size Flock (50 flamingos)     $50 donation
  • Flocking Insurance                          $50 donation

Do this.  It’s for fun…it’s for a couple of great causes…..and you just might make someone laugh who could really use that right now.

Flock your friends.  Bring joy.  Raise money for HART and RUFF START RESCUE.
