Google boosts Android Pay adoption with $1m charity fund

Google is to give up to US$1m to the DonorsChoose.org charity by the end of December by donating US$1 for every purchase made in the US using Android Pay. On Black Friday (November 27), donations will be doubled to US$2 for every mobile payment made.

Android Pay logo“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,” the company writes in a blog post. “This is part of Google’s focus on improving the lives of people with disabilities through their Global Impact Challenge: Disabilities.

“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. There’s never been a better time to give — twice.”
