Donation Matching Day 7/15/2015 - FINAL Report

We promised to update you throughout the day on where we stood with regard to today's donation matching activities.  Here is our final report on today's activities.

Thanks to YOU, we have collectively Henriettaraised $21,800, exceeding our $20K goal for today (about 75% of one month's average vet bills).  About $2300 in *Mickaboo* challenge grant funds remain - we will talk to the challenge grant donors about how they want us to handle the leftovers.

Henrietta, our 450+ birds in our rescue flock, AND the volunteers who care for these wonderful creatures thank you VERY much!  We could not do what we do without your financlal support.

Want more details about today's event?  Read on...

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 donations@mickaboo.org - we'll be happy to answer them.  

Thank you again for enabling our dedicated volunteers to help these beautiful and intelligent birds.
