Surf the Web with Chrome and Google Will Donate To Charities on Your Behalf, No Kidding
By on December 15th, 2010

We have all received those silly email and SMS forwards promising that some rich guy (often Bill Gates) or big corporation (Google, Facebook, Yahoo etc.) will donate towards a noble cause if you just pass the message along to everyone in your contact list. Most of us knew better. However, Google is now actually doing something as unbelievable.

Google-Chrome-Causes

All you have to do is install Google Chrome, install the “Chrome for a Cause” extension, and surf the web. For every tab that you open, Google will donate to one of the five chosen charities. Here’s what your tabs are worth:

  • 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

Google-Chrome-for-a-Cause

This is a win-win situation for Chrome users, and might even get a few people to jump ship. This scheme will be valid only from December 15 to 19. So go ahead and make the world a better place with Chrome.
