There's a 'new' version of Google that claims to be able to predict your future, but it's something you should probably experience yourself.

If you want to try it out, please visit betagoogle.com.

If you don't want to try it, we'll let you know what happens below.

You're greeted with a fortune-telling version of Google, which invites you to ask the search engine a question, at which point everything changes.

The search engine autofills to a certain list of questions - regardless of whatever question you were originally asking.

You're then brought to a results page.

The page reads:

Of course we can't predict your future!

But 60 million refugees ask themselves every day if they have a future at all. So we used a fake Google-site to get your attention because apparently you were interested in your own future. Please take a moment to think of their future.

With this project we want to create awareness. We need structural solutions on a political level for this growing European problem. Please feel free to donate your time, money or love and spread the word.

Regardless of what you think of the refugee crisis or how it should be solved, it's an interesting method of promoting a cause.

If you want to help the refugee crisis, here are some ways of doing so.
