Help bird rescue - special matching gift opportunity!

Morgan, a cockatiel who needs your help
Morgan, a cockatiel who needs your help

Many thanks to those of you who recently donated to Mickaboo! Because of your generosity and others, Mickaboo won one of the $500 cash bonuses offered in the Global Giving Mother's Day Tribute Card Contest - a wonderful gift honoring all Mickaboo foster and adoptive parents.

We have an extraordinary matching gift opportunity coming soon! From June 12, 9 pm PT to June 13, 9 pm PT (i.e., the full calendar day of June 13 in Eastern Time Zone terms), Global Giving will match 50% of your online donations (up to $1,000 per donor per project), until Global Giving has given $75,000 in matching funds. Go to Mickaboo's Global Giving page to take advantage of this opportunity - an even more unique opportunity since Global Giving's normal match rate is 30%!

Your donations help birds like Morgan, a cockatiel (pictured). Morgan is an older female who used to live in an outdoor aviary.  Something startled Morgan - she bashed her wings, abraded her chest, and fractured her jaw so her beak is now misaligned. Morgan's previous owner decided her time had come and was going to let her die.  Mickaboo stepped in to take Morgan to an avian veterinarian where she spent two weeks in intensive care (and ran up quite the vet bill - almost $1,000!). Would you consider taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity and help pay the vet bills for Morgan and other birds like her?

P.S. Your gift may *also* be eligible for matching by your employer! Send any matching gift forms to Global Giving for processing.

Mother's Day is Coming!

April, a recently surrendered cockatiel
April, a recently surrendered cockatiel

Many thanks to those of you who recently donated to Mickaboo! Your donations help birds like April (pictured). When Mickaboo received a call from a shelter that a badly-injured cockatiel had just been surrendered to them, Mickaboo picked up April right away and rushed her to the vet. She was very skinny, had a badly injured wing and seemed completely run down. After spending a week in supportive care, she was placed in a loving foster home to recover from whatever got her into this bad situation 

Mother’s Day is coming soon!  Consider honoring the women in your life with an unconventional and unique gift – a gift to Mickaboo (via Global Giving) in their honor.  You will have your choice of personalized electronic, paper, and print-at-home cards to give to your special “moms” as the honorees of your gift(s). And, if you give between now and 9 pm Pacific on May 13, your gift could earn Mickaboo a $500 bonus (for the ten nonprofits with the most card-giving donors).

Would you consider taking advantage of this bonus opportunity and help pay the vet bills for April and many other birds like her?

Honor Mom - Help a Bird!

Risa, a feather-plucked Pionus
Risa, a feather-plucked Pionus

Many thanks to those of you who recently donated to Mickaboo! Because of your generosity and others, Mickaboo collected enough funds in the last month or so (centered around Global Giving Bonus Day) to pay for almost a month of veterinary expenses - a wonderful gift.

Your donations help birds like Risa (pictured). Risa experienced some major life changes that were just too stressful for her to handle. Sadly, she coped by picking at her body and feathers. Risa’s former owner cared for Risa very much and was worried about Risa’s health and happiness, so she surrendered Risa to Mickaboo, hoping that a change combined with extra love and attention, continued veterinary care and a good diet would restore Risa’s exterior beauty to match her interior. Risa is currently receiving veterinary care for mutilation, feather picking and dermatitis.  She also needs to gain some weight and strength. Though Risa is feeling a little down and out, she is still very kind, and looks forward to spending time with her human family or sitting quietly on their laps. Because of Risa’s medical and behavioral challenges she’ll likely need medical care for the foreseeable future.

Mother’s Day is coming soon!  Consider honoring the women in your life with an unconventional and unique gift – a donation to Mickaboo (via Global Giving) in their honor.  You’ll have your choice of personalized electronic, paper, and print-at-home cards to give to your special “moms” as the honorees of your gift(s). And, if you give between May 1 and May 13, your gift could earn Mickaboo a $500 bonus (for the ten nonprofits with the most card-giving donors).

Read our April newsletter, written by Mickaboo's volunteers, for more about how your dollars enable Mickaboo to help over a thousand birds like Risa annually.
