Actually Crowdrise is a heck of lot more fun than Facebook if you ask me.
Facebook is mostly for killing time and best suited for Facebook itself capitalizing on advertisers and your boredom, while Crowdrise is geared towards Fun/Friend-raising, doing good by giving back to the community to help elevate socioeconomic conditions around the world and being rewarded with honest to goodness good vibes coming at you from every direction. Plus their Customer Service is out of this world and will tickle you silly every chance they get.
(CNN) -- Actor Edward Norton has been in the spotlight for more than 15 years. But what some fans might not know about him is his work off-camera -- helping raise hundreds of millions of dollars for charitable projects over the course of his career.
For Norton, giving back has always been a passion -- so much so that he recently helped create what he calls the "Facebook of philanthropy."
The website is called "Crowdrise" (www.crowdrise.com) and the goal behind it is to make charitable giving fun. Norton and his friends saw an opportunity to change how people give online.
"We were very frustrated by what we saw out there. Everything out there was just ... we called it 'use and drop,'" Norton said. "It was just a button where you can donate and really nothing more, and we wanted to communicate more than that."
Crowdrise is a fundraising web platform that's also a community.
