May 2nd will be incredible as the entire state of Idaho will come together to help nonprofit organizations through a day a celebration and giving. Will you be helping on this historic occasion?

From midnight -11:59pm a share of every dollar raised by Idaho nonprofits will be matched with funds from the Idaho Gives award pool. In addition, the top five organizations with the most unique donors (nonprofits are divided by size) will receive bonus grants of $3,000, $1,000, $500, $250, and $250 respectively.

The scope of the program is incredible. Having put together and hosted my fair share of fundraisers, I know that raising money for a charitable event can be like "herding cats." But this isn't just one organization, or one business, or one person, this is the entire state of Idaho.

You can donate online, or at the Magic Valley Mall to the nonprofit of your choice. Jackie will be live at the event tomorrow from 4 to 6 pm.

Will you help when Idaho Gives?
