The Hulk Wants You to Get Smootchy With the Charity Crowd!

(Alternate title for this post: "I am Jack's charitable impulse")

Former Incredible Hulk/bi-polar pit fighter/purple rhino, Edward Norton, is promoting his new charitable crowdsourcing project, Crowdrise, and its holiday drive, the Crowdrise Holiday Fundraiser Thing.

Says Norton's HuffPo boilerplate: "Crowdrise is an innovative, crowdsourcing community of fundraisers and volunteers who are raising money for charity and having the most fun in the world while doing it. Whether you're running a marathon, volunteering, or have causes that you care deeply about, create your own fundraising pages on Crowdrise and raise money for over a million charities. Crowdrise also empowers nonprofit organizations to raise money in new ways by turning their grassroots supporters into grassroots fundraisers. Crowdrise is way more fun than anything else aside from being all nervous about trying to kiss a girl for the first time and her not saying something like 'you've got to be kidding me.'"

I like Crowdrise's personality, which offers a fine mix of snark and good intentions. I'll see over time how much I like Crowdrise's functionality, as I carve out a place in the crowd for Comics Cure. You can check on my progress or join the crowd yourself here:
