Facebook on Wednesday said its charitable giving tools have helped people raise over $1 billion in a span of three years.
So far, over 20 million people have either donated to or started a fundraiser on Facebook.
The social network also announced that it was bringing the non-profit fundraising tools to Canada and Australia.
“Our nonprofit and personal fundraising tools are now available in 20 countries,” Naomi Gleit, Facebook’s Vice President for Social Good said in a statement.
People use Facebook’s charitable giving tools for non-profit and personal causes.
Facebook introduced these tools in 2015. They are still not available in India.
“Our non-profit community also continues to grow, and there are now over 1 million nonprofits in 19 countries that can receive donations directly through Facebook,” Gleit added.
With fundraisers both big and small, people have made a lasting difference in their communities. (IANS)
