“Instagram is all about bringing you closer to the people and things you love, and a big part of that is showing support for and bringing awareness to meaningful communities and causes,” an Instagram spokesperson told Pro Bono News.
“Later this year, people will be able to raise money and help support not for profits that are important to them through a donation sticker in Instagram Stories. We will share more updates on this feature in the coming months.”
