Incentives aren’t anything new, companies use them all the time to get you to use a product they want to succeed. Android Pay isn’t new and has been around before Apple Pay was a thought but not many are using it. In an effort to boost Android Pay usage and do some good at the same time, Google will donate to special education every time you use Android Pay. Starting today and going through Dec. 31st Google will donate $1 – $1 million to special needs education projects, read Google’s post below.
‘Tis the season to give back. Android Pay and Google.org are teaming up with DonorsChoose.org to support the 6.4 million children in the US education system with special needs. Over the last month, Google.org has been shining a spotlight on teachers who are using innovation in the classroom to improve learning and inclusion for kids with special needs. This is part of Google’s focus on improving the lives of people with disabilities through their Global Impact Challenge: Disabilities.
Now, Android Pay is extending that effort. Starting today through December 31st, we’ll donate $1— up to $1 million — to special needs education projects.
And as we kick off the season of giving, we’re doubling our donation for every Android Pay purchase made on Black Friday (November 27th). There’s never been a better time to give — twice.
