Our studios have been flocked for a good cause. Your front yard could be next.

"Flock-A-Friend and be a hero for Child Safe of Central Missouri" is the latest fun awareness campaign and fundraiser for the group, whose mission is to respond to and prevent child abuse, help families heal and restore childhood hope.

For a donation, you can flock-a-friend or block your friends from flocking your yard. For a $25.00 donation you can flock-a-friend. Add $10.00 and you can do it anonymously.

Been flocked and don't think pink flamingos are cute? For $15.00 Child Safe will get those flamingos off your lawn that day. A $40.00 donation will get you insurance that you're front yard won't get flocked.

And if you want to get back at the person or people who flocked you, flock 'em back for $50.00. In this case the flamingos will be immediately removed from your yard and migrated to the person who flocked you.

Child Safe of Central Missouri recommends flocking your friends, family, boss, co-workers, neighbors or even your arch-nemesis. The flocking experience, according to the groups flyer "is meant to be all in fun and help the group raise awareness in our communities to prevent child abuse and support the services provided to children and non-offending families who have been impacted by trauma."

There is one serious note about those pink flamingos on the lawn. Each flamingo represents a child who needs access to the services provided by Child Safe. As people sign up to become a Hero for Child Safe by pledging $20 a month for a one year through their online annual giving campaign, one flamingo will be replaced by a blue pinwheel, representing the safety, playfulness and joy every child deserves.

Reserve your flock today by calling 660-829-3434.
