Games for Good

Kids don’t just play games, they benefit from them.

In efforts to raise money for the United Nations Children's Fund, you can play a couple of online games that educate and fundraise for UNICEF. The game's website promotes an advocacy group that works on behalf of UNIFEF, U.S. Fund for UNICEF. Through partnership, UNICEF and the U.S. Fund for UNICEF provide entertainment, opportunities for volunteers, fundraising outlets, and educational tools that function on behalf of children around the world.

The online games allow players help others via different missions related to promoting education, nutrition, clean water standards, better health practices, and sound responses to emergency situations. Players can challenge their friends and compete to see who is more successful in completing missions similar to the missions conducted by UNICEF in real life.
