Google Raises $1 Million in Charity From Chrome Extension
Last week, Google launched a Chrome extension in which every tab users opened would contribute to charitable donations to The Nature Conservancy, charity: water, Un Techo para mi País, Doctors Without Borders, and Room to Read for planting trees, providing clean water, building shelters, administering vaccinations, and publishing books.
Here's where the donations went:
- 60,599,541 tabs were opened to contribute to $1 million raised.
"We're glad to connect Chrome users with these important causes all around the world -- so much so that we're already thinking of more Chrome for a Cause projects for the future!" says product marketing manager Sarah Nahm.
Google says it will make the donations at the end of the year. As for the extension, if you keep it installed, you will receive updates on future initiatives Google will utilize it for.
