Folks, the CrowdRise #GivingTower Holiday Challenge was a really big deal and raised lots of money for nonprofits.
A total of $4,141,131 was raised for charity. That includes all prize money (I gave $50k) and the money raised by all the charities, online and offline. That's 15.5x leverage on the prize dollars.
The Grand Prize winners are…
-1st Place: The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust with $364,979 raised
-2nd Place: Cure JM with $287,328 raised
-3rd Place: Wildlife SOS with $143,342 raised
-4th Place: Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee with $129,855 raised
-5th Place: Alfalit with $92,030 raised
There were lots of cash prize winners this year – 32 in total. You can take a look at all the winners here. A big congratulations to everyone who participated, and to the good folks who donated.
