A Girl Scout Cadette Troop from Pennsylvania wants to go to Switzerland in two years, and they've come up with a new idea to raise the $30,000 they'll need to get there... What could they possibly be doing?  You won't believe it!  The Girl Scout troop is raising money for their trip by placing flamingos on lawns of unsuspecting victims who pay to have them removed.

 

Read more about it at The Pennsylvania Patriot-News Website.  Maybe this story will get your creative fundraising juices flowing!
