Google “One Today” Helps Android Users Make a Difference


When you think about how much we pay for our smartphones, for wireless service, for apps, movies, and music to load on them – it can be enough to make you feel the slightest tinge of guilt. After all, there are plenty of good causes out there that really need our help, and here we are making all these frivolous purchases. If you’re interested in helping to balance things out and give back a little, you’ll want to check out Google’s latest project, a charitable giving app called One Today.

One Today helps introduce users to interesting nonprofits. Every day it will share a new one with you, and try to learn over time what types of projects you’re most interested in, helping it better pick which ones to introduce to you. There’s no obligation, but if you like what you see, you can use the app to donate a dollar.

There’s a social component that will let you see where your friends are giving, and match their donations if you so choose.

Right now One Today is invite-only, but if you’re an Android user interested in trying it out, you can head over to the project page and request an invitation. Just hit up the source link below.
