Crowdrise is a crowdfunding platform that's about raising tons of money for charity and having the most fun in the world while doing it. Crowdrise is way more fun than anything else aside from being all nervous about trying to kiss a girl for the first time and her not saying something like 'you've got to be kidding me.' The Crowdrise community was named a “Top 25 Best Global Philanthropist” by Barron’s and one of the best online fundraising websites by Mashable. We're trying to keep Crowdrise a secret so please don't tell anyone but know that, as soon as you create a fundraiser (which takes all of 19 seconds), you'll be a part of something really special. The Crowdrise site is a unique blend of online fundraising, crowdsourcing, social networking, contests, and other nice stuff.
