Use Android Pay this holiday season and Google will donate money to charity

Shopping and charity come together

Google is really getting into the holiday spirit this year, with search giant promising to donate $1 in your name for every purchase you make using Android Pay this holiday season.

Starting today, when whenever you use Android Pay to pay for a purchase, Google will donate $1 to special needs education programs in the US through the charity DonorsChoose.org.

This donation program will run up until it hits $1 million in total, or up until December 31 of this year.

And to really kick things off, Google will donate $2 per purchase on Black Friday, November 27, whenever you use Android Pay.

Of course, it's a great campaign to get people to start using Android Pay, Google's smartphone NFC payment system, which goes up against Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.

Google says there are currently a million locations across the country that accepts Android Pay.
