Balloons flying

Charitable crowdfunding platform, CrowdRise, is preparing itself for the “world’s largest charity effort” to mark #GivingTuesday on December 2nd, 2014.

It is also creating an app that will allow the world to watch the charitable giving on #GivingTuesday in real time, which will be available for download on November 25th, 2014.

CrowdRise co-founder, actor Edward Norton, said: “What we have in store for #GivingTuesday is big. Really big. We can’t wait to give the world an incredibly cool firsthand look at the power of the crowd and we’re excited to work with so many amazing causes that are partnering with us on this project.”

Henry Timms, executive director of 92Y and co-founder of #GivingTuesday said: “We are thrilled to see CrowdRise’s innovative and ambitious campaign. Their fun vibe and meaningful work bring philanthropy alive, and showcase the kind of collaboration that is at the heart of #GivingTuesday.”
