I’ve been meaning to post this for a long time and after receiving yet another email reminding me of it’s existence, I’d like to introduce you to the world of FreeRice.com. This website is a vocabulary quiz of sorts and for every word you get right, the sponsor that is currently advertising on that page donates 20 grains of rice through the United Nations as a means of ending world hunger.
Now 20 grains might not seem like a lot, but that’s for each word answered correctly. This program was started on October 7, 2007 and so far 10,604,716,470 grains of rice have been donated. So go ahead, increase your vocabulary and give the gift of food this holiday season.
