For the first time Google has asked its users to donate money to support a cause – the fight to contain Ebola.

The company pledged to give $2 for every dollar donated by its users to Doctors Without Borders and other non-profits working in West Africa.

And users responded. Google raised $7.5 million — with $2.5 million from donors, reports NPR News.

Google’s CEO Larry Page already donated $15 million through his family foundation and the company will add $10 million to its matching donations.
