When it comes to fundraising and charity. I’ve not seen anything like this before. Crowdrise is a fantastic organisation based in the United States. When I joined up, it was mostly out of curiosity, but as I got into it I realised I just had to write about it and let you guys know that you should really consider signing up.

Crowdrise got it right in one hit. Not only is it an online fundraiser. It mixing the dish with social networking, prize winning, points incentives and so much more that makes you want to work your butt off into finding a charity and helping raise money. Not only do you set up your own projects, but Crowdrise allows its users to join projects run by other users so people can work together. Its about taking things global. And since our world is living through technology, Crowdrise have pulled into the market and got everything you need online. Users upload photos or videos online to keep the donators informed about the progress of the project.

Not only are charities using this site to raise money and awareness, Crowdrise has also attracted the likes of Sophia Bush (Best known for her role as Brooke Davis in One Tree Hill) and Russell Brand.

There is so much happening that the only problem Crowdrise seems to have is, where the hell shall I go first?! Every project is so deserving and if I was a millionaire, I would be giving to all of them. Sadly, most of us aren’t the fortunate millionaires we wish we could be and we cant afford to donate to every project currently live on the site, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share the love.
