free rice

If you've been looking for a way to fight world hunger, but aren't sure how to get started, here's your answer (thanks tangled and true!).


Even if you're not looking to fight world hunger, you can cure boredom and improve your vocabulary. Here's how it works:

For every vocabulary word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice. In no time at all you will have fed an entire family. So let's get playing. Visit www.freerice.com and help end world hunger.


*If you plan to make a habit of it-go to "Options" and set them to "remember me." This way the site will total all your grains of rice every time you visit! I just donated 600 grains in about six minutes-what are you waiting for?

great post Liz. Thanks for passing it along. I too get hooked on word games and other time wasters, but this one is for a good cause :-)
