Google has made it easier than ever before to donate to your favorite charity with the recent release of its free app, One Today.
One Today, launched in the US about three months ago, will introduce a new charity every day. Users can then pick and choose which charities to which they would like to donate. The recommended donation is $1, but is not limited to that amount. Users can donate as much as they want to, and the app can keep track of all donations, which can be useful come tax season.
Charities that will be supported by the app will include humanitarian, animals, education, and environmental efforts, according to Google. As their motto goes, “Do a little. Change a lot.”
