Google is now introducing an option to make donations through the Play store.
Google announced in a recent Blog This feature is currently rolling out for Play Store users in the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, and Indonesia only. Users in these regions will begin to see this feature in the coming days.
Google has created a dedicated landing page for the function, where you can donate to a group of nonprofits. For users in India, sadly, the feature is not available yet.
Google has currently partnered with ten organizations to get you started. These include the American Red Cross, US Doctors Without Borders, The Girls Around You Code, UNICEF, the US World Food Program, and Save the Children. Google plans to add more organizations to this list in the future and make the feature available to users in more countries.
If you are in any of the countries mentioned above, you can go here on your Android phone, and choose any organization to learn more about them and donate to support their work. Google said it will not take any payment cuts, which means that 100 percent of your donations will go to the charity of your choice.
“We are inspired by the many ways the Play community shares resources, supports each other, and creates positive change. We hope this update offers a way to help other communities other than of our own need,” Maxim blogged Mai, Business Development Manager, Google Play.
