Google will soon let you donate to charitable organizations via the Play Store

The holiday season is upon us, and Google wants to make sure you won't miss out on making donations to charitable organizations. The search giant has introduced today a new landing page on its Google Play service that allows you to donate to participating nonprofits directly via the Play Store.

However, only those residing in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Germany, Great Britain, France, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, and Indonesia will be able to use the service. It will be available to those countries over the next few days.

Once you visit the page and select the charitable group of your choice, you can then use the card that's linked to your Google Play account to make a donation. Google says it won't take a cut from the contributions you'll be making like it does to your Play Store purchases.

Participating organizations include American Red Cross, charity: water, Doctors Without Borders USA, Girls Who Code, International Rescue Committee, Room to Read, Save the Children, UNICEF, World Food Program USA, and World Wildlife Fund US.

It's not the first time that Google launched this kind of effort. Late last year, the Mountain View internet giant added a "donate" button to its search results for making contributions to charitable groups.
