Last week Academy Award nominated actor Edward Norton unveiled a new social networking website Crowdrise.com, to help volunteers and charitable organizations promote their causes and raise funds.
He’s already got some of his celebrity pals–like Jonah Hill, Seth Rogan, and Will Ferrell–
creating profiles and promoting projects on the site.
“If Seth Rogan can manage it and you can’t, then you’ve got a problem,” Norton told me, jokingly. He explained that one could create a profile and begin outreach for their cause in 15 minutes of less.
I recently spoke to Norton about the new site, whether volunteering is a path to happiness, and what inspires him as an actor and an activist.
