Kizzy, doing some personal grooming
What if you could help our beautiful, intelligent (and numerous! over 500!) rescued birds simply by going online earlier than usual? GlobalGiving's most generous Bonus Day of the year is Wednesday, July 12, starting at 6 am PT. This Bonus Day will match your gifts at 50%, boosting your donation's effectiveness while the $110K in matching funds last (and usually the funds go VERY fast - sometimes depleted in less than 30 minutes!).
AND for a short time - GlobalGiving is reducing Mickaboo's processing fee to roughly half its normal rate for most donations, again helping your gift go further.
Your financial support will help us continue to help birds like Kizzy, a Goffin's Cockatoo. Kizzy's first owner lived in a college dorm and kept her as a secret pet, stuck in a closet. Likely because of her environment, she developed a bad feather plucking habit. She changed owners five times in seven years, ultimately landing with an owner who loved her but realized she couldn't afford the large cage and plentiful attention a cockatoo requires.
Kizzy was surrendered to Mickaboo by this owner and has since been adopted to a new permanent home. Kizzy has had a diet change (but still resists her vegetables, of course), has grown in her plumage a bit, and has adjusted well to her new home. The adoptive parent says "She's a complete love, has become harness trained, and steps up for everyone. Kizzy is my close companion and we go everywhere together. I can't imagine how it's taken her seven owners to find her forever home; she's an absolute joy."

Details about the upcoming Bonus Day:
- the 50% match is limited to $1,000 per donor per nonprofit
- we will email you the donation link at 6 am PT on July 12
- want to sustain Mickaboo's work on a monthly basis? Start a recurring donation at any time on July 12! After your third installment, Mickaboo will receive a 100% match of a single installment amount.
Our recent veterinary bills have been very high, reaching $50,000 per month at times, in part because we have sooo many birds in our care. Please save the date on your calendar to help us; it will be much appreciated.
