EACH DONATION you make enters us into an additional CASH PRIZE through the Award Pool!

“To make Idaho Gives fun, an award pool of $48,000 will be up for grabs on May Pacific Source 1. Thanks to our generous sponsors, that is nearly $10,000 more than last year. Awards will be giving to nonprofits with the largest number of unique donors in three different categories – small, medium and large nonprofits. In addition, random awards – Golden Tickets, including the special “5×5” Golden Tickets, and Donor Appreciation Awards – will also help nonprofits add to the success of the day. Cash amounts, hours and other specifics are outlined in the Award Pool”… Details linked here! https://inc.memberclicks.net/assets/idgives/award%20pool%20description.pdf

Celebrate Family Fun Run… 2014!

  • Posted on April 8, 2014 at 3:00 pm

We are gearing up for our third annual CELEBRATE FAMILY FUN RUN! scheduled for June 21, 2014, at 9:00am. Mark your calendars!

Many ways to register! Print forms or register from the website (www.celebratefamilyfunrun.com), find them in the Race Rag, or look for the bright green registration forms in local businesses like Mitchell’s Harvest Foods.

In 2013, 135 women and children sought refuge in Ruth’s House and Esther’s House domestic violence shelters. The money donated from our race helped to keep them warm, fed, and safe. I *know* you want to be a part of that for 2014!


All Star Jump did an amazing job with face painting and balloon creations last year — and they’ve been booked again for 2014! This run is truly a family event!

April marks the start of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Although we work every day to bring attention to this very serious problem, this month is dedicated to this important work.

What are you doing to help shatter the silence? What campaigns, or activities are you involved in? PLEASE SHARE 

Request from Bright Star Philanthropy Partners!

We need your help to let people know about Bright Star’s Global Giving fundraiser to pay for seeds to grow 5 tons of vegetables for the starving Guatemalan families who sent PRM the beautiful handcrafts for the Pay it Forward fundraiser.¬† A leaf fungus has ruined most of the coffee crop, leaving these families with no source of income for the next year.

The other Bright Star Philanthropy  Partners for this Crowd Funding project are Seed Programs International, ASO-Ixil ( the Guatemalan non profit that arranged for the handicrafts for your fundraiser), and Alex Larkin, a young missionary. I am hoping you will join this effort by making a  donation yourself, and by encouraging others to do so.


This Global Giving effort is being shared on Facebook, and BSPP is asking its partners to help support this project.  The Goal is $1000, which will pay for enough seeds to grow 5 tons of vegetables, education for youth and those who have lost the knowledge of how to grow organic vegetables in small plots, fencing for community gardens and watering cans. The campaign is kicked off today.


Please donate and try to get a couple more donors. We want to raise the money by mid February.

 The minimum donation is $10, but that $10 will buy seeds to grow 1000 servings of fresh vegetables.

Reoccurring donations (3 month minimum) are being matched 100% by an anonymous donor. I have donated $26 a month for 3 months, so with the match that will be $156. I have arranged for a friend to take the seeds to Guatemala in their luggage, (22 pounds of seeds with Dept of Ag customs paperwork).

Thank you, and blessings for the New Year


A Moment of Silence, A New Beginning

We want to take a moment to mourn the death of a sweet local young woman, Brandi Jacobe. We all loved her. Our hearts and prayers go up to our Lord and Saviour for her grieving family. Please remember them in your prayers. She passed away December 15th and is survived by her young son, Colton Kuprienko.

And as 2013 has come to and end, and a new year has come, PRM would like to honor 3 incredible women: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight. You are our nomination for Women of the Year. You are the example of courage, strength and perseverance. We praise God that you endured and survived, and we thank Him for your witness. Blessings to you dear sisters. May this year bring you peace and joy overflowing!
