Help bird rescue - donation match opportunity!

Jade, a Budgie

Would you want your charitable contribution to be made MORE effective?

From June 14, 9 pm PT to June 15, 9 pm PT, Global Giving will match your donations at 30%, up to $1,000 per donor per project, until $250,000 of qualifying donations has been received. And there’s more - Mickaboo can earn a $1,000 bonus if we raise the most funds, AND another $1,000 bonus if Mickaboo has the most unique donors!

Your donations help birds in our care like Jade (picture attached).  Jade was found by a kind person who noticed a little budgie being chased by a cat in her driveway. She called a friend who rushed over to help catch sweet Jade. Jade’s veterinary care includes bandaging her injured leg and treating a serious feather lice infestation. She must have been out in the wild for a long time given how overgrown her nails and beak were! We are glad to have been able to save this brave little girl and give her a new lease on life in a secure, loving environment.

Would you consider taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity and help pay the vet bills for Jade and many other birds like her?
