According to Google, “In celebration of the holiday giving season, you can make charitable donations to inspiring nonprofits from the Google Play Store. If you’re in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Taiwan and Indonesia, you’ll see this update over the next few days. Making a donation on Google Play is quick, easy and 100% of your contributions go directly to the nonprofits you choose.”
As Google points out, 100% of your donations will go to the donation of your choosing, meaning that unlike how Google usually takes a cut from purchases made via Google Play, this won’t be the case in this particular instance. The supported charities include American Red Cross
charity: water, Doctors Without Borders USA, Girls Who Code, International Rescue Committee, Room to Read, Save the Children, UNICEF, World Food Program USA, and the World Wildlife Fund US.
If you’d like to learn more or maybe start making donations of your own, head on over to the donation hub on Google Play for the details.
