Instagram enables Donation stickers for nonprofit organizations, An improved camera UI is also coming

As promised earlier by Facebook, users in U.S. region can donate to their favorite nonprofit organizations using Instagram.

Yes, that’s right! The social messaging service is introducing Donation stickers for Stories that would directly link to the accounts of US-based nonprofits. This feature was first spotted by Jane Manchun Wong.
"You can now use the donation sticker to create a nonprofit fundraiser and mobilize your community around a cause you care about.", announced Instagram in a press release.
To use the sticker, simply add a location or the #hashtag to your Story, select a sticker from the tray, choose the organization you wish to support, and upload it to start your campaign.

You can also see how much you have managed to raise by swiping up on the Story.


Instagram would be sending the full amount to the organization you choose, without deducting anything.

The Facebook-owned platform is also planning to introduce a new camera design in the coming weeks that would enhance the Story feature further – and of course, convenient. The new feature would also give users quick access to effects and interactive stickers.
"In the coming weeks, we’ll introduce a new camera design including Create Mode, which gives you an easy way to share without a photo or video.", announced IG team.
And unlike the Donation sticker feature that is only applicable for the US-based users, the new camera design would be rolled out globally.
