Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser

You've Been Flocked by MMI for Developmental Disabilities Awareness

Flamingo Flocking for Developmental Disabilities Awareness

Munroe-Meyer Institute’s Flamingo Flocking Fundraiser was created to raise awareness about the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities in all areas of community life, as well as awareness to the barriers that people with disabilities still sometimes face in connecting to the communities in which they live.

For a small donation, our trained technicians place pink flamingos on front lawns where they will rest for 2-4 days until they mysteriously migrate to another location. The birds come with a sign that says, 'You've been flocked by MMI for Developmental Disabilities Awareness,' and an instruction sheet about what to do if recipients want to 'pay it forward.'

This flocking is done in good spirits, so thank you for your support and sense of humor. You do not have to be flocked before you can order a flocking so sign up now to flock your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues and we'll schedule your flocking as soon as possible.

Funds raised will advance MMI's mission of transforming the lives of all individuals with disabilities and complex health care needs, their families and the community through outreach, engagement, premier educational programs, innovative research and extraordinary patient care.

So, what now?

Ordinarily, this would be your chance to pay it forward, sending the flock to an address of your choosing for a donation of $30! A $15 donation would simply remove the flock, no questions asked. There is always the option to call or email our team to have the flock removed for free.


Our flocking season has come to an end

Please check back - when we are ready to start flocking again, this page will be updated with an order form and all the details you need to flock a friend, neighbor or co-worker!

Thank you Omaha

Our trained technicians have delivered flocks all over town! These birds have roosted in many yards to create curiosity and raise awareness for disabilities.

Thank you for your support and advocacy for developmental disabilities awareness!
