Lift the Moratorium - Give on Oct 23 (Tomorrow!)

Please give tomorrow morning during GlobalGiving's Bonus Day (starting at 6 am Pacific), to help us lift our moratorium!

Mickaboo's Board of Directors voted to impose a moratorium on further bird intakes on October 4.  We have an extraordinarily large number of birds in our care, including members of the Wild Flock of Telegraph Hill, that are or have been very ill.  To continue caring for the birds we already have, we must stop taking in additional birds, with the minor exception of surrendered birds accompanied by a fee for incremental medical costs. 

You can help lift the moratorium,and help us help more birds! This is a reminder about the matching gift opportunity tomorrow. From Oct 23, 6 am PT - 9 pm PT, GlobalGiving will match your online donations at 30%, up to $1,000 per donor per project, until GlobalGiving has given away $20,000 of matching funds for all of its projects. Go to Mickaboo's GlobalGiving page early tomorrow to take advantage of this opportunity - the matching funds go quickly (generally in an hour or two).

Your generosity will help birds like Jackie. She is a sulphur-crested cockatoo recovering from a prolapse, a condition where the uterus protrudes through the rectum and becomes subject to infection and tissue death.

Please make a note (now) to give tomorrow and help Jackie and many, many other birds like her become healthy enough to be placed in their forever homes.  They and our volunteers will really, really appreciate it!
