Ed Norton is pioneering the way with Crowdrise in raising money for charities online. He had the idea of what if celebrities could use their power for the good of charity. If Paul Newman can sell products and raise over $250 million for charity, what could Edward Norton do online?
Individuals can setup projects, as well as organizations in an effort to raise money. The site is well organized, offers the ability to load incentives for donators and more.
Our favorite cause: Hand for Japan
The Ogawa Family, together with the Red Cross, is challenging donors to donate for Japan disaster relief. Every tax deductible dollar you donate, the Ogawa family will match equally in contributions to the Red Cross up to $500,000. Together we can donate One Million Dollars to the Red Cross.
Crowdrise and the Ogawa family will cover all transaction related fees so 100% of your gift will be doubled and sent to the Red Cross to support disaster relief efforts to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
