Charity and Learning - What a Combination!

Smart Rice
Charity and Learning - What a Combination!

"At FreeRice.com - contestants are offered four definitions for a word; by clicking on the right definition, a donation of 20 grains of rice is made to the U.N. World Food Programme. The U.N. distributes the rice worldwide...

...The Web site earns money from advertising and gives cash to the Word Food Programme. Some $100,000 has already gone to buy rice to feed survivors of a recent cyclone in Bangladesh."
NPR - Net Game Boosts Vocabulary, Fights Hunger


Inspiration - A simple idea can change the lives of many. Kudos to John Breen for illustrating once again that we all have the potential to impact the world. Be inspired and change the world in your own way.

It all adds up - The grains of rice add up, the number of participants adds up, the pennies in your account add up. Keep at it!

Learn and give - I had a blast playing the game. It's fun, addictive and obviously helps feed hunger. What is not to like about this combination? Give it a shot at FreeRice.com
