here’s an interesting site. Free Rice offers 10 grains of rice to a hungry person through an international aid agency for every vocabulary word answered correctly. Here is Free Rice‘s MO as indicated on their site:

  1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

I don’t know how many street children have access to the internet regularly, but any site that attempts to help those in need while improving one’s vocabulary is all right by me. in a matter of minutes, i was able to donate 500 grains and learn a few new words as well. if you have a few minutes to spare, give the site a look.
