The Firefox Challenge, powered by Crowdrise, has officially ended and we are pleased to announce that more than $1 million was raised for social and humanitarian causes, turning individual action into global impact.  We invited the world to take part by donating to a celebrity’s cause or fundraising for their own favorite cause.

The winners are as follows:

  • First place donation of $50,000 will be awarded to the The Ian Somerhalder Foundation. Ian Somerhalder Foundation aims to empower, educate and collaborate with people and projects to positively impact the planet and its creatures. Ian Somerhalder, actor, raised more than $122,000 in the challenge.
  • The second place prize of $30,000 will be donated to Comfort the Children, International, an organization that works alongside Kenyan communities to provide resources that create sustainable change. Jimmy Kimmel, comedian, raised more than $121,000.
  • Third place prize of $20,000 will be donated to the Bat World Sanctuary who raised more than $105,000. The Bat World Sanctuary rescues and provide shelter and care to bats and is recognized as the world’s leader in bat care standards and cutting-edge rehabilitation treatments.

Altogether there were more than 118 charities competing to raise money in this year’s competition and thousands of people came together to raise more than $1 million for charity.

Mozilla would like to extend our congratulations and sincere gratitude to all participating individuals and organizations that made the Firefox Challenge a major success. Thank you all for helping us do a world of good.
