"This year, Ithaca College's chapter of Habitat for Humanity is continuing it's annual "Flamingo Flocking" fundraiser to raise money for the club. All raised funds support our annual three week-long build trips down south to help eliminate poverty housing! Each night the group, wearing their AWESOME shirts, courtesy of CustomInk.com, heads out with 75 flamingos and stakes the birds into the lawns of two houses. A "ransom" note is left, which describes who we are, and asks for a donation toward our cause in order for the birds to "fly away". They then give us an address of a friend, family member, co-worker, etc. and the following night, we pick the birds up and flock the next victim! It has been great working with CustomInk.com, they were so very generous and even gave a donation to our club! Thanks again for the support"
