#GivingTuesday - What are YOU Doing?

On this Second Annual #GivingTuesday, join us in sharing why you give - and consider donating toward our matching gift campaign.

Typically, the holidays are when many Americans volunteer to help the most vulnerable. Others make charitable contributions that can last throughout the holiday season. Today we celebrate #GivingTuesday, a worldwide effort to raise awareness and motivate action for the common good.  #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to giving (as opposed to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, days dedicated to shopping) -- when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more all come together to celebrate helping our communities.

Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue is proud to support #GivingTuesday.  Here's how you can too!

  • Friend us on Facebook.  Tell us why you support Mickaboo and share your thoughts with your friends!
  • Follow us on Twitter and tweet about your #GivingTuesday activities
  • Give to your favorite bird rescue (Mickaboo)!  Generous supporters have created a matching gift fund of $3000; it'll be used to match YOUR online donations today on a 3-1 basis (every $3 you give will be matched by $1 from the matching gift fund).  Give by midnight PacificTime today for your funds to count!

We'll share some of your FB posts and tweets on our blog throughout the day - look for yours!

The volunteers and Board of Directors (and our foster flock of over 400 birds!) thank you for all you do throughout the year to support us as we help companion birds in need like Sweetpea, the pictured greencheek conure. We recently re-homed him when his former owners could no longer provide the home environment he needed. 

We look forward to seeing your thoughts on FB and Twitter!
