July 12, 2013, 2:06 PM — Google released its One Today charity app for Android quite a while ago, but up until now it was by invite only. Today, the free app is open for all at the Play store. One Today is a do-good, feel-good app that lets you donate to charities with as little as $1.
One Today showcases a different project every day, across animal, education, health, environment, and humanitarian causes. It's a convenient way to discover charities you'd like to support and make a difference with your pocket change. The app tells you how your money is being used for that project.
You can post your donations on Google+ to encourage others to donate as well.
And, finally, the app tracks your donations for you--which will come in handy at tax time.
Get your charity on and learn more about One Today here, and spread the word!
