Donating Made Simple, Browse for a Charity

December 15, 2010

Tabs for Charity!

Google just released a Chrome extension which will donate items based on the number of tabs you have open in a day.

How it works:

Everyone’s total tabs will determine a charitable donation made on behalf of the Chrome community, up to one million dollars. Here’s what your tabs can do:

  • 10 tabs = 1 tree planted
  • 10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
  • 25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
  • 100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
  • 200 tabs = 1 person’s clean water for a year

Want to participate?

How to Participate

  • Get the Chrome for a Cause extension
  • Browse the web with Chrome between December 15 – 19
  • At the end of each day, you’ll be prompted to click on the extension to submit your tabs
  • Choose which charity you’d like to support with that day’s tabs — you can always support the same charity, or pick a different one each day

Please help, if all it takes is to use Chrome, install an extension and browse the web to save a life, then this is the least we can do to help.
