You do NOT need a CrowdRise account to make a donation. We timed it, and you can make a donation on CrowdRise in less than 23 seconds. If you beat the 23 second mark, we recommend bragging to all your friends about how fast you type. We do encourage you to create an account mostly because you get CrowdRise Impact Points when you donate. You get 10 CIPs for every $1 you donate or raise. Earning CrowdRise Impact Points is a very prestigious honor and we guarantee your life will never be the same. Our mean lawyer won't really let us guarantee that but he should.
