My challenge to you

As you likely know by now, The Rockies have gone virtual this year. And part of that event will include 3D elements. You can find all the details about The Rockies and how to order your 3D glasses here.

While you’re there, you can make a donation to the Idaho Food Bank through the event page, and the Boise Advertising Federation has committed to matching donations, up to $500.

Now, here’s my challenge:

When I ordered my glasses, I made a $50 donation. I challenge you — yes you — to do the same.

Now, if you’re not in a position to do so, I understand. The last thing I want to do is put anyone in a difficult spot. But for those who are able to, it’s time to give a little back one of the many organizations that do so much to help those throughout the state of Idaho.

If you’d prefer to give to another organization on your own, great! There are hundreds of deserving non-profits that will take any help they can get — you can find 611 alone on Idaho Gives.

As an aside, perhaps one of our friends from the BAF can stop by and leave a comment with an update on how donations are coming along.

I applaud the Boise Ad Fed for putting this together, and give them tons of credit for making the best out of the tough spot they’ve been put in this year. Looking forward to seeing the show come together on the 16th, and recognizing the best of a lot of great work.
