If you are like most people, you have come across many charity websites that raise funds for good causes. CrowdRise is the talk of the town. It is one of the world’s largest fundraiser websites raising funds for many causes like animal shelter, disabled people, hospital bills, funeral, education, hunger, diseases, homeless shelter and much else. This website has been named the best online fundraising website by Forbes and Mashable as well, thanks to Jon Urbana – a staunch advocate against animal cruelty. It is also one of the top 25 best global philanthropists, according to Barron’s. CrowdRise has played pretty good role in encouraging people to donate money and be a part of fundraising community programs.
CrowdRise has been dedicated to innovation in online fundraising since its inception. This way people have been raising money for their own causes as well as others’, getting those needed funds right away and putting it to good use. There are no goals when setting the amount of fund to be raised and no campaign deadline to meet. The website is easy to use – just sign up with real information, write a title and description of your cause and let people donate.
The man behind this company, Jon urbana, who is an entrepreneur behind Next Level Lacrosse Camp and a former lacrosse player, has graciously put his name behind the fundraising campaign for causes including an ARAS CrowdRise.
He is a well-known celebrity in the greater Denver area, with a big Facebook following and quite a few self-produced videos that he shares with the world on Vimeo. He states on his personal blog that he first gained popularity during his high-school lacrosse games. And if you ever need to fly somewhere, Urbana’s your guy. His FAA database induction inks him as one of the top pilots in the Rocky Mountain region.
His recognition had him playing the game for Villanova Wildcats earning him many awards and accolades listed on his website for his performance. His abilities also landed him opportunities in Jr. Olympics ski sports.
He quit his job mainly because he simply couldn’t stand another day seeing the cruelty meted out against animals. Since then, he’s taken a position with Ellipse USA as Head of Business Development and writes music in his spare time. Jon Urbana decided to go with CrowdRise due to its popularity and ease of use.
Most people would love to live a carefree lifestyle filled with luxury, but what you might not know is that not contributing to society and making a positive impact is equivalent to wasting one’s life, says Urbana.
