Helping the World 10 Rice Grains at a Time


My BFF sent me this great link the other day: FreeRice.com, a sister site of Poverty.com. It's an organization where sponsors donate 10 grains of rice every time YOU get an English vocabulary multiple choice answer correct. EVERY word counts! Their two goals are to:

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

Free Rice started back in October 2007 and have been growing exponentially. They've already passed 2008's total just from Janurary of this year! :D I have to admit, I'm horrible with vocab terms, but they have levels and make it easy yet challenging. Please check out the site, play a little when you got the time, donate a few rice grains and spread the word. ;) Hope everyone's enjoying their weekend!

UPDATE: I JUST found that you can click on SUBJECTS to choose a subject of your choice instead of English vocab! :D
