The Blue Ocean Society is a Green Alliance Business Partner that recently got involved in an amazing opportunity to raise money for its organization. Patagonia and Moosejaw are offering a challenge on Crowdrise.com, a Web site through which people can donate money, for charities to compete in raising funds. The organization that raises the most funds by noon on March 13 will receive an additional contribution courtesy of Patagonia. The winner with the most donations on Crowdrise will receive a $5,000 donation. Second and third place charities will also get a monetary reward.
