Tech companies often get involved and give back to the community, and Google is no exception. Usually the first to set up information pages to assist people around the world find others in disaster areas, the tech giant has donated €1 million (over $1 million) to organizations who are providing front-line humanitarian relief in the refugee and migrant crisis currently facing Europe.
Calling it the world’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II, Google also announced that they will match the first €5 million (about $5.5 million) in donations made by others with a goal of raising €10 million (about $11 million).
Your donation will go to Network for Good, a donor advised fund, and will then be distributed to four nonprofits providing aid to refugees and migrants. These nonprofits are helping deliver essential assistance – including shelter, food and water, and medical care – and looking after the security and rights of people in need. Google will cover all processing fees so that 100% of your donation goes to where it is needed most.
Google has set up a donation page through their One Today website, the program which lets users give $1 each day to causes and nonprofits that inspire them. The money raised will be split between Doctors Without Borders, International Rescue Committee, Save the Children, and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.
