Idaho Gives was on May 4th, 2017 from 12:01AM to 11:59 PM MST.

Idaho Gives is a statewide, 24-hour giving day taking place in May every year, and it’s all online! Since the inaugural event in 2013, Idahoans have raised more than $3.3 Million for participating organizations, one donation at a time.

Every year on one amazing day, people across our state come together for Idaho nonprofits. It’s a day to celebrate the awesome work of Idaho’s nonprofits and benefit from the power of many.

It is about philanthropy, ‘friendraising’ and much more. Idaho Gives is about coming together to support the charitable nonprofits that make our state so extraordinary.

Idaho Comes Together—Be A Part of It!

“Sowing the Seeds of Creativity”

Christine Warjone  Ketchum artist • photographer • traveler

As an artist my greatest delight in creating a piece is immersing myself in the journey of conception to completion.

As a person who walks our planet and who has planted herself in this community, my greatest joy is sharing the process of creativity with the next generation.

Art prepares kids for the future. Creative, open-minded people are highly desired in all career paths. Art and creative education increases the future quality of the local and global community. Being creative is a life long skill and can be used in every day situations.
Taking part in the Wood River Valley Studio Tour is just one way of sowing the seeds of creativity to not only our residents of and the visitors to our beautiful valley but it  helps the next generation understand  that art is a universal language and it can open door to many opportunities.

I think Winston Churchill had one of the best quotes with respect to art and the impact it has on society.  At the height of the war, 
British citizens were facing severe shortages and rationing.  When asked how he (Churchill) could continue to support funding public art, 
he responded ……..“then, Madame, what are we fighting for?”.  

Art provokes thought, discussion and expression.  When artists open their studios and allow the public to to become invested in the process, it is incredibly inspirational.
