Help bird rescue - special matching gift opportunity!

Many thanks to those of you who recently donated to Mickaboo! Because of your generosity and others, Mickaboo won one of the $500 cash bonuses offered in the Global Giving Mother's Day Tribute Card Contest - a wonderful gift honoring all Mickaboo foster and adoptive parents.

We have an extraordinary matching gift opportunity coming soon! From June 12, 9 pm PT to June 13, 9 pm PT (i.e., the full calendar day of June 13 in Eastern Time Zone terms), Global Giving will match 50% of your online donations (up to $1,000 per donor per project), until Global Giving has given $75,000 in matching funds. Go to Mickaboo's Global Giving page to take advantage of this opportunity - an even more unique opportunity since Global Giving's normal match rate is 30%!

Your donations help birds like Morgan, a cockatiel (pictured). Morgan is an older female who used to live in an outdoor aviary.  Something startled Morgan - she bashed her wings, abraded her chest, and fractured her jaw so her beak is now misaligned. Morgan's previous owner decided her time had come and was going to let her die.  Mickaboo stepped in to take Morgan to an avian veterinarian where she spent two weeks in intensive care (and ran up quite the vet bill - almost $1,000!). Would you consider taking advantage of this matching gift opportunity and help pay the vet bills for Morgan and other birds like her?

P.S. Your gift may *also* be eligible for matching by your employer! Send any matching gift forms to Global Giving for processing.
