Make-A-Wish and Dwell with Dignity have teamed up with IDS as collaborating organizations of #idsIMPACT to help provide projects for IDS members. However, projects can be completed for any charity or organization in need. The work can be of general benefit for the community such as a park or community center, or the work can be for a non-profit, religious or other charitable cause.

"Our members, as well as the interior design community as a whole, are already involved in charitable endeavors within their respective communities," said Snoa Garrigan, Executive Director. "By launching the #idsIMPACT Awards, we are merely giving IDS members a means to showcase their pro bono work and bring further attention to the causes they support."

You may request your free entry by emailing by Dec. 15. You must be an active IDS member to enter.
