Received this email from Mickaboo, the companion bird rescue. These long-lived birds deserve more rescue attention. Please help them if you can.
There’s just three days left to take advantage of a matching grant opportunity! This opportunity is geared toward encouraging smaller donations;GlobalGiving will match eligible one-time donations up to $50 at 50%, and new recurring donations at 100% of one installment’s amount while funds remain, or until the campaign ends at 8:59 PT on Friday, April 13.
Your financial support enables us to help birds like Crackers and Rosie, one of Mickaboo’s most recent rescues. (Rosie, a blue and gold macaw, is pictured at right.) The birds’ owner had passed away and was found by local law enforcement. It is unknown how much time elapsed between his passing and when he was found. His daughter, who lived out-of-state, contacted us to ensure his birds landed in safe hands. Mickaboo worked with the local animal shelter whose personnel had removed the birds and, after validating their health status, have placed both birds in wonderful foster homes pending placement in permanent homes.
You can help us continue to make a real difference in the lives of both avians and the humans who care for them. Donate now through GlobalGiving’s matching program and the first $50 of your gift will be matched!
With many thanks,
Pamela A Lee
