It’s that magical time of the year when you wake up, look out the window, and see snow piled high!  You turn on your radio and discover that today is …

A Snow Day!!!

On Friday, March 23rd, Idaho Parents Unlimited will be having our annual ‘Virtual Snow Day’ fundraiser when we invite you to lean back, kick up your feet, and enjoy a mug of hot cocoa with us. We use any donations given to directly assist families who have children with disabilities, and to defray costs not covered by our grants.

Any time between now and March 23rd you can click here to contribute, click the "IPUL's Virtual Snow Day 2018" button on the left hand side of this page, or you can mail a check to:

Idaho Parents Unlimited
4619 W. Emerald, Suite E
Boise, ID 83706
We have shipped out cocoa packets to everyone who had donated as of Friday the 16th, but you can still contribute and qualify for the drawing!

With each $10 contribution you will be sent an envelope of hot cocoa, to share virtually with IPUL. Also, every $10 contribution will earn an entry into a drawing to win either a $500 Southwest Airlines gift card or a $500 Amazon gift card (winner’s decision!)
For every $10 dollars you donate you will have another entry into the drawing! (One entry for $10, 5 entries for $50 … you get the point.)
IPUL provides information, resources, and supports with a focus on special education, health care, and the arts to families just like our own.  Help us to help them!
