Google's Chrome For a Cause

Download of the Day: Chrome For a Cause

Amid the hustle, bustle, and consumerism of the holiday season, it's refreshing to take a moment to give back. And Google is making it easier than ever to give by combining charitable giving with something that most of us do every day: browse the web. Google's Chrome For a Cause extension will donate money to a worthwhile charity every time you open a new browser window.

Find out how to use it after the break.

To use it, download Chrome (if you haven't already), and install the extension. At the end of the day, users choose which charities they'd like to donate to: The Nature Conservatory, Charity: Water, Doctors Without Borders, Un Techo para mi País , and Room to Read.

The donations break down as follows:

  • 10 tabs opened means one tree planted or one book published and donated
  • 25 tabs opened will equal one vaccination treatment
  • 100 tabs will mean you help build one square foot of shelter
  • 200 tabs will help give one person clean water for a year

Google is prepared to donate up to $1 million from Dec. 15 through the 19 depending on usage.
