Google announces Ebola campaign, will match your donation 2:1
As awareness for the Ebola virus is constantly growing, we’re seeing more and more companies jump on board to help with donations. Facebook recently started placing a big Donate button on the top of your News Feed, in hopes of making it easier for people to send money for the cause. Now it’s Google’s turn.
Today, Google is announcing a public giving campaign to help fight Ebola. For every dollar given in the campaign, Google will donate $2. In addition to their generous offer, they’re also immediately donating $10 million to support nonprofits like InSTEDD, Medecins Sans Frontieres, NetHope, Partners In Health, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, and U.S. Partners for UNICEF.
What’s more, Google’s family foundation is giving a separate $15 million for the cause as well. Between the two donations, Google is donating $25 million, on top of doubling everyone else’s money. That’s huge. If you’d like to donate, head to Google’s donation page.
