Change the World, One Bird at a Time

Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support of Mickaboo's mission to save and enhance the lives of those companion birds whose owners are unable or unwilling to care for them, and to provide current bird care information to those who are able and willing.

I wanted to tell you about a matching gift opportunity from GlobalGiving - a way for you to support us now and increase the effectiveness of that financial support. From March 13, 9 pm to March 14, 9 pm Pacific Time (the full calendar day of March 14 in the *Eastern* Time Zone), GlobalGiving will match your online donations at 30%, up to a maximum of $1,000 per donor for each project, until GlobalGiving has given away $50,000. Go to Mickaboo's GlobalGiving page now to take advantage of this opportunity.

Your donations help birds in our care like Sherby the lovebird (pictured). a sweet lovebird who used to live with three other lovebirds and her former owner. Sherby started plucking badly, mutilating her skin. We don't know what triggered the plucking. Sherby may have been just too stressed and bullied by her room-mates. The former owner surrendered all four lovebirds to Mickaboo. Sherby is now living in a foster home where (as prescribed by our veterinarian) her foster mom is giving her medicine daily, and she acquired the neck collar she is wearing in the picture.

Would you consider taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity and help us pay the vet bills for Sherby and the many other birds like her in our foster flock?

P.S. Your gift may *also* be eligible for matching by your employer! Send any matching gift forms to GlobalGiving for processing and crediting to Mickaboo.
