Today Google announced that they would be making one of the largest donations they have ever made. The tech giant announced that they would be giving approximately $11.5 million to the charity this week which is an absolutely amazing amount of money for any corporation to give at one time. The charity Google decided to support is dedicated to fighting slavery around the world and the generous donation from Google will definitely help their cause.
The charity says that their issue is largely ignored by many people but it is really a serious issue. Around the world there are as many as 27 million modern day slaves which they hope to free. Slavery around the world is in fact a widely unknown problem and with Google’s help the charity may finally have the power and money they need to make a big difference.
Google reportedly chose to give to this charity simply because of the fact that so few people know about the issue. Google generally likes helping raise awareness and this is exactly what the charity needed as well. In the coming months the charity plans to significantly expand their operations thanks to Google’s funding although the exact details of what they plan to do are still unknown. The International Justice Mission is incredibly grateful for the generous donation from Google and now millions more people around the world will finally know about this massive issue that goes unnoticed by so many people.
