Idaho No. 7 Most Generous State

Say what you will about us Idahoans, we're also generous and ready to volunteer to help. From Causes comes news that Idaho is the 7th most generous state in the nation:

The Potato State boasted the highest rate of new charities founded between 2000 and 2010. As it turns out, Idaho residents are generous with both money and their time. Not only did Idahoans donate 6.4 percent of their discretionary income to nonprofits, but 32 percent of the state’s residents also report volunteering (much higher than the 26 percent national average).

Utah, which is the only state to out-volunteer Idaho, again is No. 1 in the category of generosity. Click here.

Question: Do you consider yourself generous?
