Actor Ed Norton and a boatload of other prominent names have come together to launch Crowdrise, a volunteering and social good website where individuals (and celebrities) can create personalized fundraising pages for specific causes.
From the website:
The pun-filled website grew out of Norton's Massai Marathon, an effort to protect wildlife in Kenya and Tansania. The campaign benefited from online promotion, and raised $1.2 million in less than eight weeks, with an overwhelming percentage coming from small donations.
Just a few of the celebrities who already have Crowdrise fundraising pages:
