Google is teaming up with a group of nonprofit organizations to help you make donations through the Google Play Store during the holiday giving season.

The portal is currently listed as "Coming soon to Play."

"We're inspired by the many ways that the Play community shares resources, supports each other and creates positive change," Google said in a blog post. "We hope this update offers a way to help other communities outside of our own in need."
