Google is sticking to their mission plan statement “Do no evil” by releasing an app that lets users learn about various nonprofits and charitable organizations. The app known as One Today showcases a different non-profit daily and allows users to donate with a finger press. The app will let users donate a maximum of $1 per day to the projects.
The app has a social feature as well, allowing users to see donations from friends and match them, as well as spreading the word about causes to friends and the public via Google+. The transactions are processed through Google, and will reach selected charities minus a 1.9% credit card fee.
The app tracks user interest in certain causes and recommends new ones relevant to the user’s donations. The donations are a tax write-off in the states, and Google makes it easy to keep track of donations with Google Wallet integration, allowing users to receive confirmation e-mails and use them as receipts.
