This charity gaming app uses social media and doodles to make a difference. The Elbi app is a micro-donation platform that lets users make and share pictures. This is an excellent way to teach kids philanthropy and encourage an activist mindset.

Elbi uses gamification to enhance their social networking application. Users of all ages can make little drawings on their smartphone, which are then sent to charitable organizations to cheer people up (like an orphanage). Other Elbi members can 'like' a doodle and donate either 1 dollar or 1 pound. This makes donating to the charity gaming app as easy as uploading a photo to any other social media app.

While many other causes are combining social media with social good, this one is a fun way to introduce children to the concept.
