Charitable Apps and Sites

Donating to charity through text messages and websites is great, but kids may need something more interactive to help them understand how they're helping. Apps and sites can help families take direct action, learn about important causes, and nurture compassion. Aside from developing empathy and gratitude, helping others can boost kids' self-esteem and expand their worldview. From a trivia game that eases world hunger to stories about people in need, we've hand-picked our favorite apps and sites that help kids do good. And for more inspiration on how kids can help, try this list of Movies That Inspire Kids to Change the World.
