One other site I am a fan of is the World Food Program's Freerice game https://freerice.com
By simply playing a vocabulary game, you help feed desperate people all over the world. Specifically, as you play Freerice and answer questions right, advertisements appear on your screen. When you see one of these advertisements, you trigger a financial payment to theWorld Food Programme (WFP) to support its work saving and changing lives around the world. In the game, these payments are represented via grains of rice.
