Bird Toon of the Day - January 1, 2016

I wanted to start the New Year with the very first Calvin and Hobbes bird-related toon, but was chagrined to find that I already posted the first two in the course of 2015.  (This is the result of not having been able to properly calculate the original publication dates, which I am now able to do, having located my bound set of The Complete Calvin and Hobbes.)  So here is the third C&H to have a bird theme, from September 13, 1987:

2nd Annual Quita Memorial Challenge Grant - Final Update

The final total is $27,310, over 90% of our $30,000 end-of-year fundraising goal!  THANK YOU for your collective generosity - our volunteers Quitaand Board of Directors are flabbergasted and humbled by your outpouring of support.  The funds will go a long way toward meeting the medical needs of our foster flock (depending on how needy our birds are, of course - our December 2015 bill from just ONE veterinary clinic exceeded $25k).

Want to jumpstart your New Year with a gift? Here are the ways: 

  • by sending a  check or money order to: Mickaboo, P.O. Box 697, San Jose,  CA 95106-0697
  • online, with a credit card through Network for Good
  • online via Mickaboo's website (www.mickaboo.org) - use either of the two "donate" buttons in the left margin

ALL gifts of any size are welcome and are fully tax-deductible.  Monthly giving is also VERY appreciated, as this provides a way for us to plan our cash flow (and avoid emergency funding calls!).

Today's results include final totals for both online giving and checks we have received through the mail. 

Wishing all of you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Today's Cheezburger photo (from April 21, 2013) is my way of gently reminding you, if you attend a New Year's Eve party tonight, please don't drink and drive.  I'd like you to be around tomorrow as we start another year of bird 'toons!
