Mountain view tech giant Google announced that it will be shutting down the One Today, the donation app for NGOs and US charities. For seven years, the platform served as a bridge to support different types of causes, ranging from reducing hunger in extreme regions to creating digital resources for children with autism.
The shutting down information for the app was communicated by the company itself in an email to users of the platform. The One today app will be shutting down on February 6, 2020. Check out the official mail below:
We have an important update to share with you.
We launched Google One Today seven years ago to help people donate to causes they care about. In the last few years, we have seen donors choose other products to fundraise for their favorite nonprofits.
As a result, we will shut down One Today on February 6th, 2020.
New nonprofits will no longer be able to sign up for One Today. The Google One Today app will be turned off, and any open projects will be deleted. We will ensure that 100% of funds donated on One Today prior to February 6th are disbursed to the relevant nonprofits.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the One Today team.
Thank you for your donations and partnership.
The Google One Today team
After this period, the Mountain View company will collect the donated amounts and allocate them to the respective projects chosen in advance. Despite the similarity in name, this tool has no connection with Google One, a cloud storage plan for ordinary consumers, which will remain active.
