At Google, we’re always looking for ways to support organizations that are changing the world and supporting people in times they need it most. That is why we recently teamed up with UNICEF and the World Food Program to launch a quick response to Typhoon Yolanda through our mobile app, One Today.  

Over the course of this week, all users of One Today will receive projects encouraging them to support the relief efforts taking place in the Philippines. 

Download the Android app today and help provide relief to the estimated 2.5 million people affected by this disaster. 

Don’t have an Android phone? You can donate on the web as well!
