Donation Matching Day 7/15/2015 - 11:15 AM Progress Report!
We promised to bring you updates through the day on where we stood with regard to today's donation matching activities. Overall, we have raised 84% of our $20K goal for today through YOUR collective generosity. *Mickaboo* challenge grant funds remain - give now at www.mickaboo.org (look for the "Donate" buttons at the left) to take advantage of them! Henrietta and our many other birds will squeak and chirp your praises!

We started the day with GlobalGiving matching online donations - and that matching ended with a bang roughly 30 minutes into their event, with us having raised about $5400 at that point.
Thanks to the generosity of some anonymous donors who then stepped forward, a $7K Challenge Grant fund was formed, for online donations through Mickaboo's (not GlobalGiving's) website. The Challenge Grant will match 50% of Mickaboo's website donations today through 9 pm or until funds run out. As of this writing, $4500 in matching funds are left.
Questions? Post them to firstname.lastname@example.org - we'll be happy to answer them.
Thank you again for enabling our dedicated volunteers to help these beautiful and intelligent birds.
