How many tabs have you opened in your browser today? We know many of you probably open tens or even hundreds of tabs in a day—now, you can put all those tabs toward serving a good cause.

Earlier this week, we invited the Chrome user community to participate in the Chrome for a Cause project this December 15-19. Already tens of thousands of web denizens have “donated” the tabs that they opened in Google Chrome to help drive a charitable gift that Google will make on their behalf, up to $1 million.

Just halfway through the project, the global Chrome community can already be proud of the impact they will enable through our five partner charities. The millions of tabs contributed so far will go towards:
  • administering vaccinations, via Doctors Without Borders
  • planting trees, via The Nature Conservancy
  • providing clean water, via charity: water
  • publishing and donating books, via Room to Read
  • building shelter, via Un Techo para mi País
There’s still time to participate—here’s how to join us:
  • Get the Chrome for a Cause extension
  • Browse the web with Chrome between now and Sunday, December 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 support the same charity every time, or pick a different one each day
