Google Chrome Users Collect 1 Million Dollars

About a week ago, Google has started a unique charity project that converts opened Google Chrome user tabs into various goods:

10 tabs = 1 tree planted
10 tabs = 1 book published and donated
25 tabs = 1 vaccination treatment provided
100 tabs = 1 square foot of shelter built
200 tabs = 1 person’s clean water for a year

Today, it was revealed that 60,599,541 tabs were raised for charity ($1 million) and will be used to:

Plant trees ($245,278)
Provide clean water ($232.791)
Build shelters ($112.078)
Administer vaccinations ($267.336)
Publish books by local writers and illustrators ($142.518).

Good job!
