Website of the day: CrowdRise

Online fundraising is hardly anything new. If you’ve done your bit for good causes, it’s possible that you found about about the charity online. It’s possible that you registered for an event online. Maybe you followed an online training schedule, if you signed up to do something physical.

And, it’s likely that you set up a page where friends and family could donate and show their support for both you and your chosen charity.

But what about the kindness of strangers?

At crowdrise.com, you can harness the power of the web to connect with millions of people you don’t know, and you’d be surprised how many people will get involved in fundraising if you just ask them.

In recent weeks there have been some amazing examples of millions of people coming together to raise some much needed cash, and this is where you can tap into some of that too.

We're not suggesting you’re going to raise millions through here but you’re certainly going to get your efforts seen by a global audience.
