FLOCK A FRIEND to Help end the cycle of poverty!
What: An entirely socially-distant-friendly fundraiser for Lakeside Hope House
When: July 13-August 15th
How: Donate $50 and a flock of 12 flamingos will be delivered on your behalf to a lawn anywhere in Guelph! Make a $100 donation and we'll deliver a "double flock" of 24 flamingos!
Note: You will receive an email the business day following your donation to collect the information of where your flock will be going. Be sure to not select anonymous as this is how we obtain your contact information.
Flocks are delivered and set up at the intended address within a few days of ordering, and will remain for 2 days before being picked up, cleaned, and passed along to the next lucky recipient. Those who are "flocked" are encouraged to share the happy news on social media using #flock4hope and to "flock it forward" by making a donation and flocking someone else.
All proceeds will go directly to Lakeside HOPE House. HOPE House provides individuals and families with immediate relief such as food and clothing, as well as individual support and programs to help them move out of poverty and towards an independent, hopeful future. With HOPE House, people are discovering talents, jobs, community and self worth.
HOPE House is about creating and providing a community for those who need it the most. With our Capital Campaign, we are working towards providing a stable, sustainable environment where community members can flock to, in order to access various services and programs.
Recently, we were able to purchase the building in which HOPE House has called home - but we need the community's support. Our capital campaign fundraiser is designed to help us keep funds in programs and services - where they are needed most; and not just in the building. As a community based centre, we are seeking the community's help in sustaining and building our HOPE community.
Will you flock to the challenge and have some fun at the same time?
Sending a flock to someone's yard (or even your own,) is a great showcase of the power of community - and how fun is it to drive around and see a flock of flamingos on yards all through Guelph?
You can make a difference in lives of others and have fun by participating in Flock 4 Hope!
