Trending: Google Seattle building loses power as ‘blown breaker’ prompts large emergency response

Google today announced a $10 million donation to non-profits that are helping fight Ebola, the deadly disease that’s killed nearly 5,000 people in West Africa. In addition, the search giant launched a public Ebola fundraising campaign and will match every dollar contributed with two of its own — up to $7.5 million in total. Google CEO Larry Page is also giving another $15 million via his family foundation.

Google’s donations follow Facebook’s public call to action last week and a personal $25 million contribution from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife.

Last month, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen pledged nearly $100 million to fight Ebola.
