Mark Zuckerburg may have just donated $25 million to help fight against the spread of Ebola, but he isn't stopping there.

As of Thursday, Facebook is now opening up to its 1.3 billion user base an Ebola donate button that will sit at the top of the site on mobile and desktop, as they have done for major natural disasters in the past.

Donations sent through the platform will be passed onto three separate charities helping to fight the spread of the disease in West Africa, the International Medical Corps, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and Save the Children.

So far, the American Red Cross has raised nearly $3.7 million for Ebola relief and this boost from the social network should help further the humanitarian efforts – although it's unlikely money will save this problem alone.

Since the outbreak, Ebola has killed nearly 5,000 people and infected over twice as many.
