Are you passionate about a cause but can’t find the right organization to work with? Or maybe you just want to help your favourite charity raise some money. If so, you can stop looking elsewhere and create your own project pages with Crowdrise
. This innovative new website allows anyone to sign up and promote their favourite causes easily and efficiently.
Here’s how it works:
- Create your profile. This allows you to show everyone what sorts of charities and organizations you are involved with.
- Start a project. Big or small, post whatever event or cause you care about and create your project page. You can also join other project teams or charities to help them by volunteering or raising money.
- Share your project. Send out links to your project page via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social networking site. This way, word will spread quickly and before you know it, your project will go viral.
- Charities get their money. Through their secure credit card processing system, the money you donate will reach the specific charity.
This fun and easy website is a great way to encourage volunteering, fundraising and donating, for all sorts of different causes. Whether it is a local personal fundraiser or a huge worldwide charity, you can easily promote it using Crowdrise.
