BDPA Adds Another Scholarship Fundraiser to Ed Norton's Crowdrise Platform

With all the hoopla of a Hollywood release – but with some of the Gen X slacker style of its founder – actor Edward Norton’s Crowdrise - a much-hyped blend of social media and star power aiming to be the next big fundraising and volunteering platform.

And there are prizes galore for high-achieving campaigns, from sweatshirts to iPhones and Macs.
