Last week I won a CrowdRise T-shirt on twitter. Thanks Felix for promptly shipping it out to me! This was so exciting because I never win anything! If you do not know what CrowdRise is, you should check them out at http://www.crowdrise.com/ Basically, CrowdRise “crowd funds” charities. Which is funny because this week, I participated on a podcast for crowd funding for start-ups with Susan Outlaw of PeerBackers AND my fave, Tory Johnson, did a segment on crowd funding on GMA earlier in the week. Obviously, crowd funding is all the rage, so why not blog about it? Of course, I should blog about it. I thought that I would give you a deeper look at CrowdRise and its importance for start-ups………..
