Matching Gift Campaign - March 23-29, 2020

Final Update: March 29, 9:30 pm

You did it!  We reached our $15K fundraising goal AND used all of the matching gift funds. THANK YOU to all of you who gave, who asked their friends and family to give - and especially who established the Challenge Grant fund. 

Our many birds and the volunteers who lovingly care for them, day in and day out, appreciate your open-heartedness during these times.

2019 Year-End Matching Gift Opportunity: Sixth Annual Quita Memorial Challenge Grant

YOU did it!  Collectively you raised over $22K, leveraging all of the Challenge Grant funds.  Whether you gave a little or a lot, all of us at Mickaboo appreciate your generosity.  This amount, together with the Challenge Grant donation itself, will pay for almost all of January's medical costs - a wonderful way to start the new year. 

We wish all of you a prosperous and safe holiday.  Thank you all again.

2018 Quita Challenge Grant ends SOON!

Final Update: 1/1/2019

You did it!  Through your collective efforts, you raised $24,600 - just about a half month's worth of our vet bills at current run rates - and used up all of the Quita Challenge Grant funds.  More importantly, you laid a financial foundation for the beginning of the new year, enabling us to meet the ongoing medical needs of our rescue flock.

Final update!

The last of the donation numbers are in - we raised $20,748!  Many thanks, again and always, for those of you who gave your hard-earned monies to help us achieve this goal. 

As we head into 2018, please remember that regardless of how tax laws are written, these magnificent creatures will continue to need YOUR assistance to heal and find loving permanent homes.  Thank you for joining with us as we move forward into the future. 

GlobalGiving's #GivingTuesday Helps Mickaboo's Birds!

FINAL RESULTS:  Nov 28, 11:20 pm PT

#GivingTuesday is over - and we've met our fundraising goal!  Thanks to you, we raised $10,397 (including matching funds). That's just about enough to pay for a week's worth of our veterinary expenses for our flock of 650 birds!

Our birds, the volunteers who care for them day in and day out, and our Board of Directors are grateful for your outpouring of generosity.
