Greetings, friends of HeroRATs,

We need your help on GlobalGiving's LAST Bonus Day of the year, this Wednesday, October 19th!

Starting at 12:01 am EDT, all donations to our NEW project, Train HeroRATs for Life-Saving Detection Missions, will be generously matched by GlobalGiving at 30%!

(Up to $1,000 per donor, per project, until matching funds run out.)

GlobalGiving has a whopping $100,000 available in matching funds, which will run out quickly! It’s an amazing opportunity to score our HeroRATs more bananas for your buck, in exchange for their heroic efforts sniffing out global problems...

And with the extra funds, we can ensure even more rats are trained for life-saving detection missions! So, please help by making your donation count for 30% more this Wednesday, October 19th. Contribute to our cause here:

We truly appreciate your ongoing support & belief in our HeroRATs!

With gRATitude,
The HeroRAT Team
