Cold temperatures and very cold water weren’t enough to keep away a record amount of people for The Great Polar Bear Challenge which raised over $38,000 for The Make-a-Wish Foundation of Idaho this year and the donations keep coming in. We were there with hot chocolate and coffee to help warm the participants as they got out of the water.
The challenge is simple: in freezing temperatures, take a plunge in the reservoir and Moxie Java will be there with hot chocolate and coffee as you get out of the water. For an event-record 337 people (many dressed in ridiculous costumes), it was, ‘challenge accepted.’
What a great write up in The Scene Magazine! We are so proud and we hope to sell enough of these to really help out the Idaho Foodbank!!!
Each CD feeds one person for 5 days!!!!
And don’t miss out on the Idaho Ho Ho tour of Idaho artists!!!

This season pick up your one-of-a-kind Christmas CD benefitting The Idaho Foodbank! Made and sold exclusively for Moxie Java, this CD is a great compilation of what Idaho artists have to offer. We couldn’t be more impressed with the kindness of everyone involved in this process, all artists donated their time and talent, the singer/songwriters, the production studio, even the great artwork on the cover!
Please join Moxie Java in thanking all the Idaho artists that made our new Holiday CD possible and help us pay it forward!
Pick one up today at any participating location for $10.00, because no one in Idaho should go hungry.
