Crowdrise – The non-for-profit sector is a godsend, but in our overly capitalist society it often lacks the necessary publicity that yields large scale impact. Charities giving a large chunk of their donations to advertisement agencies is indeed a legitimate solution, but there is an even better and much cheaper one out there: Crowdrise offers elegant and super-powerful help to charities, fundraising projects and volunteering by offering users an array of exciting tools and options to choose from.
Create your own fundraising page, volunteer project and/or campaigns and share these around, or play your giving part by joining the active Crowdrise community; earn points for voting (these can be translated into $ donations!), win prizes and more. You can also do it the old fashion way and make a donation to a charity of your choice or to another cause and/or campaign you’ve seen on the site. In short, Crowdrise has turned the NPO sector on its head in terms of raising money, spreading the word of noble causes and inviting more people to help out, each in their own way. Crowdrise, you’re my good cause promotion hero!
