Free Rice Helps You Feed the World

Have you heard of FreeRice.com? It's a nifty website that provides the visitor with a fun and truly addictive vocabulary game and an opportunity to help those less fortunate. The way it works is a word appears on the screen with four possible definitions. Only one is correct. Choose the correct definition and FreeRice's sponsors donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. Yep, 20 grains of rice for each word you get right to a hungry human being somewhere in this small world.

20 grains of rice may not seem like much but according to the site, yesterday alone FreeRice.com sponsors gave over 19 million grains of rice to hungry people the world over. Here's what some of the press is saying about FreeRice.com:

“What if just knowing what a word meant could help feed hungry people around the world? Well, at FreeRice it does . . . the totals have grown exponentially.”

- The Washington Post

“FreeRice.com is an international, viral sensation. Folks from Thailand to Germany and India are just as enthusiastic . . . improving thousands of lives, all with a simple, collective, click of a mouse.”

- CBS Evening News

BTW - the vocabulary game has 55 levels and most folks don't get above 48. According to the site FreeRice "...starts by giving you words at different levels of difficulty and then, based on how you do, assigns you an approximate starting level. You then determine a more exact level for yourself as you play. When you get a word wrong, you go to an easier level. When you get three words in a row right, you go to a harder levels."

Boosting your brainpower and helping end world hunger...everyone's a winner! Please logon to FreeRice.com today and give it a go.
