Facebook promised to match $2 million in donations to nonprofits on Giving Tuesday.
That goal was met before the sun had barely risen in the U.S. A post on the "Nonprofits for Facebook" page just after 9 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday said while the limit was already reached, Facebook would still waive fees the entire day to allow for greater impact.
"Facebook and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation matched $2 million in donations to nonprofits," the post read.
