Thank You - And a Favor Please?

GlobalGiving Photo Contest Entry
GlobalGiving Photo Contest Entry

Many thanks to those of you who recently donated to Mickaboo! Because of your and others' generosity, Mickaboo collected enough funds to lift our recent moratorium - we are taking in new birds again!

And because the vet bills keep coming, we are asking you to help Mickaboo win $1000 in a GlobalGiving Photo Contest. It's easy, costs nothing, and takes just a few seconds:

  • VOTE for Mickaboo NOW at this link (one vote per person for the entire contest)
  • CONFIRM your vote via the email you’ll receive – otherwise your vote won’t count!
  • SHARE this voting request via email / Facebook / Twitter / your other social networks, and ask your contacts to vote and to share too!  Email me at pr@mickaboo.org if you would like suggested wording.

If we win (we did last year!), Mickaboo will get $1000 and much-needed publicity about the existence of bird rescue and Mickaboo.  (Did you know Mickaboo has over 300 birds in foster care?)

See our July newsletter for useful bird care news, and articles about our rescue work.  Birds like Posey, a sweet young budgie with a badly fractured leg, surrendered to us by a shelter need our help and yours.  Posey had to have her leg amputated (racking up $1000+ in vet bills) and is adjusting well.

Thank you again for your generosity, and enabling Mickaboo to continue its mission for our feathered friends!
