In the twenty-four hours of Giving Tuesday, 2015, PayPal earned the Guinness World Record for most money raised online in one day.
"PayPal was awarded the Guinness World Record title for “Most money raised online for charity in 24 hours,” with users giving more than $45.8 million globally on Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, more than doubling the previous record of $19 million.
"The payment processor reported a 15 percent increase in giving during the holiday season while the number of mobile donations rose by 26 percent compared with the same time in 2014. More than 1 in 5 donations were made on a mobile device."--Mark Hrywna, The NonProfit Times
