CrowdRise, in partnership with The Huffington Post and craigconnects, is launching The CrowdRise Holiday Challenge on November 18th, 2013.
The CrowdRise Holiday Challenge is the best way ever for charities to rally their supporters, raise money for their cause, drive engagement, get lots of awesome exposure and raise money for their cause.
Everything launches on Monday, November 18th at 12:00pm ET and runs through Thursday, January 9th at 11:59:59am ET.
The team that raises the most during the Challenge wins a $100,000 donation for their charity
Second place gets $40,000
Third gets $20,000
Another $40,000+ in cash prizes and so many HuffPost prizes will be given throughout the campaign
Even if you don't win a grand prize, you get to keep the money you raise.
We wrote ‘raise money for their cause' twice in the first paragraph above on purpose.

It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 1 minute for your pic to upload, depending on how big it is.
You're going to see this message every time you post a new pic. So, we're making the text really long so that it'll take you at least five picture uploads to read it all. Here's what we're thinking...While your first picture is uploading think about someone you want to kiss. When you upload your second pic think about one friend who you can beat in a race. On your third photo upload think about your favorite food that begins with the letter H. While your fourth picture is uploading think about how great it would be if you were a world class breakdancer. While your fifth picture is uploading try to think of the best candy to eat if you were a mime spending a month in New Zealand. If you upload a sixth and seventh picture please just read all of this again.
We're setting up your Fundraiser page right now. It will take anywhere from 3 seconds to 27 seconds.
